An engraving by Camille Flammarion depicting the night sky, ca. 1888.

Join naturalist, writer, and classics scholar Henry Walters for a late-night stargazing adventure. We’ll look at summer constellations and hear some of the mythology surrounding these stellar characters. We’ll also scan the night sky for shooting stars during one of the prime nights for viewing the Perseid meteor showers. Bring a blanket, and meet at 10 p.m. at the Harris Center. Done by midnight.

This outing is weather dependent and will be cancelled in the event of rain or heavy cloud cover. For more information, please contact Henry at (603) 933-3349 or by email.
