We are delighted to announce that the "Season of Light" holiday program is returning to the Southworth Planetarium in full dome format.      NPR'S Noah Adams narrates this omni-dome planetarium program about the history and astronomy of the holiday season. What are the origins of the solstice festivals and Santa Claus?   Why do we celebrate New Year's Day on January 1st?   What is the history of Hannukkah?    "Season of Light" explores the rich and beautiful history of our holiday traditions. Toward the end of the show, we focus on the Star of Bethlehem.   If it were a natural occurrence, what could it have been?  An exploding star?  A conjunction of planets?   Perhaps a comet or some other celestial object.  

Join us in our star dome theatre as we celebrate the joy and observe the traditions of the holiday season.
