Get to know one of humanity’s most beloved constellations, Orion. Learn how different cultures have seen this collection of stars, how to identify it, and about its deep-sky objects like the eerie Horsehead Nebula.

If it is clear, we will view this seasonal delight through a telescope. In case of cloudy weather, activities to hone your star-gazing skills will take place in the classroom. Rain or shine, discover the heavenly wonders revealed as the sun goes down in the city.
