Besser Museum for Northeast Michigan: Art - History - Science


Now Showing in the Sky Theater:
"Connecting the Dots"
2PM thru March


“Connecting the Dots” is a delightful educational show about some of the 88 constellations. A short orientation to the sky is followed by a journey through the ecliptic (Zodiac). Next, many other patterns including: a dragon, a dog, a bear, a swan, and even a princess with her present from Perseus become apparent as the dots (stars) are connected. Stories from long ago and news from today’s astronomers help make this show fun for all. Participation is encouraged.
