DETAILS ν

During the month of December the Chesapeake Planetarium sky will be set back more than 2,000 years to the date of 8 B.C. Visitors will view the planets and stars as they were long ago. We will search the night sky for the story of a star that marked the coming of the Christmas season. We will also explore some of the astronomical possibilities suggested for the most famous star in history.

Due to limited seating, reservations are necessary and may be made by telephoning Chesapeake Public Schools between 8 AM and 4 PM weekdays at (757) 547-0153.
