Don't Duck, Look Up!

Compass, Calendar, and Clock


Grade 6 and up

As 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 asks the questions . . . How can you use the Moon tell time? How does the Sun help us find directions? See how mankind has used the sky to tell time, track yearly cycles, and find direction. Come learn how to use the sky yourself!
