Winter Solstice at Fernbank Science Center
We are having our biggest party ever on December 21, 2012 to celebrate the Winter Solstice and the beginning of a new Mayan era. This night will be fun and informative. The Buice Observatory is a great place to view the Winter Solstice sky, weather permitting. Come view the Pleiades cluster, Orion’s nebula, Jupiter, and the moon’s craters, just as the ancient Mayans did as they developed their calendar. And enjoy some hot cocoa, the Mayans’ other great gift to civilization!
