In episode 3 of the Night Sky Tourst, members of the Fountain Hills Dark Sky Association in Arizona join us for a Winter Solstice special. They share ancient cultural tales of this significant seasonal observance and will take you on a journey around the world to times long ago up to the present day.
You might be surprised by how many traditions from ancient times have made their way into your favorite holiday traditions.
And in our sky tour, we discuss when to see the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn and learn about the secret hiding in Orion’s dagger.
