Planetarium Show: Into the West: Astronomical Origins of Halloween

Time: 8:30 PM on October 7th, 7 PM on October 28th
Description: This show examines the Britons and the Celts, two groups of ancient peoples who laid the foundation for the modern-day Halloween celebration. The Gaelic festival of Samhain celebrated the end of the harvest season, and from this most important time came the origins of trick-or-treating, the carving of pumpkins and ghostly lore -- all inspired by a small, famous cluster of stars in the constellation Taurus known as the Pleiades.
