« back to classes page
Using the wizardry of the Fujitsu Planetarium, the whole family can enjoy this romp around the world to see star patterns of various cultures and hear their stories. Planetarium Presenter, Mike Askins, investigates constellations and associated myths originating in Indian, Chinese, Pacific Islander and Native American cultures.  Students and families will explore the sky as seen from southern destinations like New Zealand and Australia as well as from places where the Sun never rises or sets. With our new digital projection system, students will see both what star configurations looked like in the distant past and what they will look like thousands of years in the future.  Designed for families as well as students ages ten and up, this course brings the educational value of the Fijistu Planetarium at De Anza College to the community-at-large.
