Season of Light at Augustana’s planetarium

Augustana College’s John Deere Planetarium hosts its annual holiday show “Season of Light”. Have you ever wondered how the night sky has influenced holiday traditions? Was it astrologically possible for the Star of Bethlehem to shine all day and night? What might the movement of stars and other historical astrology tell us about what took place years ago?

December 9 – 15, 2017
Monday – Friday at 7 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Free, reservations requested – call 309-794-7318 during weekday business hours
Note: not recommended for children under 8

Dr. Lee Carkner presenting

In addition to the planetarium show, you can also visit Augustana’s Fryxell Geology Museum which will have special open hours in conjunction with “Season of Light.”
