For several thousand years, humankind has watched the Sun, moon and stars etch patterns in the sky. In fact, monuments such as Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids were built to align with the stars. 

This winter, the Appold Planetarium offers individuals the opportunity to discover the simplistic patterns that make the sky a compass, a calendar and a clock. Viewers will be surprised to learn how many ways our daily lives are influenced by the objects in the sky!

“Compass, Calendar, Clock” is offered on Saturdays, Jan. 20 & 27, Feb. 10 & 24 at 7:30 p.m. The Appold Planetarium is located inside Mother Adelaide Hall on the Lourdes University campus, 6832 Convent Blvd., Sylvania.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.
