Night Vision: Reasons for the Seasons
As the Earth orbits the Sun, we have an opportunity to observe the subtle changes each day brings us. It was some of these observations that helped influence the shape and structure of various ancient societies and helped to create the civilizations we share Earth with today. Join us as we explore the stars and constellations that are visible this time of year and discuss the relevance of the Summer Soltice; what it means to use today and what it may have meant to our ancient ancestors.
