Star Talk: Spooky Halloween

ADRIAN, MI – Robinson Planetarium at Adrian College invites the public to attend a live star talk focusing on the Autumn skies and the beginning of the Celtic year on October 26 at 7:00 P.M.

The Celtic Festival of Samhian, which is often associated with Halloween, occurs on the cross quarter date that marks the halfway point between the Autumnal Equinox and the Winter solstice. This was the time when the fall harvest was complete, the winters supply of meat was stored, and is marked the transition between summer and winter, light and darkness, and life and death.

This event is free, and open to all to attend. Group reservations and special showings can be arranged by contacting Mark Fairclough at mfairclough@adrian.edu or via phone, (517) 265-5161 Ext. 4788.

The Robinson Planetarium is located at the eastern end of Peelle Hall on the corner of Charles and Williams streets on the Adrian College campus.
