Speaking of Indigenous Skies....

The Adelaide Planetarium at the University of South Australia is presenting, as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations, "Aboriginal Skies" with Paul Curnow. You can see Paul talking about Aboriginal skies here.

From their email to me:
"Come and learn how to find the different constellations (stellar patterns) as seen by indigenous groups around Australia. Hear about the Dreaming stories that relate to the night sky. Learn about how constellations like the Southern Cross and Orion are seen by Aboriginal Australians. The evening is strictly designed for the adult beginner, with little or no astronomical knowledge who would like to know more about the night sky and the constellations, as seen by the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia."
Seats are running out fast: Saturday 30th of June 2012 at 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Adelaide Planetarium,
Building P
Mawson Lakes Campus,
University of South Australia

Cost $30.00 per person. Enrolments are subject to the seating capacity of the planetarium. To make a booking or for further information phone 8302 3138 or email the planetarium at adelaide.planetarium@unisa.edu.au.
