Archeoastronomy: Ancient Paths of the Sun, Moon and Stars

Presented by: Dean Regas

What:  
Astronomy was everywhere in the ancient world. If you look at the oldest surviving works of art and architecture, you find astronomy within them: Cave paintings in France, pyramids in Egypt, intricate mounds in the Americas. Civilizations expressed and celebrated their knowledge of this oldest science through works of art and monumental construction projects. Take a journey with Dean to explore these amazing archeoastronomy sites and discover more of what the ancients knew about the universe.

Dean Regas is the outreach astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory and co-host of PBS StarGazers.

Weather permitting, join us after the talk for a viewing of Jupiter, the Moon, and more at The Bank of Kentucky Observatory.  Thomas More College faculty and students will be available to help the public view the night sky through a telescope.

This talk is intended for a general audience.  All ages are welcome.  The event is free and open to the public.  Thomas More College faculty and students will assist visitors in using the telescopes.
