Please join us in the Robinson Planetarium for Season of Light—our winter holiday show. It traces the history and development of many of the world’s most endearing holiday customs through an astronomical perspective, all of which involve lighting up the winter season. It recounts the religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice — not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. It also takes a look at some of our more light-hearted seasonal traditions such as gift-giving and kissing, music, decking the halls with greenery and Santa Claus.
Please note: due to the construction at Peelle Hall, the Robinson Planetarium will not be handicap accessible until September 30, 2014. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Any questions should be directed to Dr. Agnes Caldwell, Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs at 517-265-5161, extension 4466.Add to Calendar
