Celestial Mythology for Students and their Families

Celestial Mythology for Students and their Families

We see the same Orion that Ovid, himself, beheld. The Pegasus that soared above the newly constructed Parthenon flies high above our backyards tonight. Medusa remains as menacing to us today as it was to the Caesars. Chimerical creatures, bold paladins, loathsome monsters, all adorning the celestial firmament.
This course, conducted solely in our star dome theatre, explores the boundless skies still populated by characters of the ancient mythological world.

Throughout the five weeks, we'll cover fifty constellations altgoether.

A class designed for those who love the richness and complexity of celestial mythology.
