One Sky, Many Stories

Target audience: Everyone welcome

Event Description:This is an image of the bright star Antares in Scorpios. It has great significance in Arab, Persian and Indian astronomy traditions and will be in the eastern sky on the 8th of August. Mars shines brightly red when it moves through Scorpius and hence, in proximity to Mars in the sky, it gets the name Antares meaning Rival to Mars. It's also known as the Heart of the Scorpion in both Greek and Persian traditions. Join us to hear more stories about the sky from different cultures and share your own cultural stories.
