UT Planetarium to examine Native-American civilizations, night skies

 The University of Toledo’s Ritter Planetarium will host three programs in June of 2007 on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

“Serpents of the Sun” will take place Friday, June 8, at 8:30 p.m.  This program will look at the Native-American civilizations from the central and southern Ohio regions. Several burial mounds in Ohio and SunWatch, the Indian village located near Dayton, also will be discussed. The program was produced by Youngstown State University and the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in Dayton

“The Summer Skies over Toledo” will be held Fridays from June 15 through 29 at 8:30 p.m. This live, interactive program gives individuals the chance to learn about the stars, constellations, and planets that are visible from their own backyards in the Toledo area. Mythologies associated with some of the constellations also will be covered.

“Our Planet” will take place at 1 p.m. Saturdays through June 30. Written for children age 6 to 12, this program explains how the Earth interacts with the sun and moon and how this affects daily life on the planet.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and children ages 3-12. Children 2 and younger are admitted free.

Observing of the sky will be offered at either the Ritter Observatory or the Brooks Observatory after all evening programs, weather permitting. Observing with the Ritter Planetarium 1-meter telescope will be offered Friday, June 1. During June, the planet Saturn will be visible.
