Hayden Planetarium Programs
Astronomy Live: Celestial Polar Express
January 2, 2014
Many of us have heard of the North Star Polaris, but we may not understand that the Celestial North Pole actually changes over time. In this lecture by longtime Hayden presenter Ted Williams, we’ll learn about the shifting poles, whether there is a star akin to Polaris in the Southern Hemisphere, and much more. And did you know there are north and south “poles” in our solar system—and even in the Milky Way galaxy? Join us as we travel across the globe in search of these celestial anchors.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family.
