When the Stars Spoke
This event has expired and is here for your information.
The Zimmerman Center kicks off its “Susquehanna Earth, Water, and Sky” lecture series Wednesday, February 12, when York County Astronomical Society founding member Gregory Markowski presents “When the Stars Spoke”. This talk explores what our area’s ancient American Indian peoples would have seen in the sky and the effect it had in their lives. Cycles such as the Sun’s rising and setting, the phases of the Moon and the observations of certain stars rising or passing overhead are just a few of the things that these people observed, remembered, and planned for. These celestial events continue today, but there are so many diversions and obstacles to seeing them we need to use printed calendars, public announcements, and essentially somebody else, to remind us when something is happening. Markowski revisits that ancient knowledge, forgotten and obscured by today’s technological society.
