The ASU Planetarium is presenting the full-dome astronomy show 'Stars of the Pharaohs' every Thursday at 8 p.m. now through May 14th.

I think this is going to be a very interesting Presentation. 'Stars of the Pharaohs' takes you on a journey back in time to ancient Egypt and gives you insight as to how science was used to tell time, make a workable calendar, align huge buildings, and more. The audience will experience some of the most amazing temples and tombs of the ancient world and how they were created. This is a great opportunity to learn about the connection the ancient Egyptians felt with the stars and various astronomical phenomena.

Enjoy this presentation in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building on the ASU campus.
