Using desktop planetarium software, take a trip through the four seasons of the night sky. Beginning in winter we'll look at some of the prominent constellations, like Orion the Hunter and others and hear their stories from Greek mythology. And since we have Greek artifacts in our collection, don't be surprised to see an artifact or two along the way. Moving through the rest of the year, see more amazing constellations and prepare to be dazzled as we zoom in on striking deep sky objects like star clusters and nebulae. To wrap up we'll look at what you can expect to see in the current night sky, including the positions of the visible planets.
