Our ancients learned the sky is not just a thing of beauty, but also our window for the position of our planet. Understanding how our planet is aligned with the distant stars allows anyone to use the sky as a compass, a calendar and a clock. This traditional show explores how mankind has used the sky to tell time, track yearly cycles, and find direction.
