PLANETARIUM CHRISTMAS SHOW AT EASTERN UNIVERSITY 2012
Show Dates are November 30, December 1, 7, 8, 14 and 15
St. Davids, PA, November 16, 2012: The Julia Fowler Planetarium at Eastern University presents the full-dome Star of Bethlehem program in McInnis Hall, 1300 Eagle Road, St. Davids, PA. Show times are 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. each night.
The show is based on a dialog between an astronomer and his five-year-old daughter (played by Biology Professor Maria Fichera’s daughter, Carina) who wants to know why we have Christmas traditions like mistletoe, candy canes, twelve days of Christmas, decorating houses with greenery, and the Star of Bethlehem. The show explains the origins of many of our Christmas customs and then investigates when Jesus might have been born.
After narrowing down the date, the show takes the audience back to Jerusalem and Bethlehem around 3 BC and attempts to look into the sky and find something that might have been interpreted as the famous Star which led the Wise Men to the Christ child. Fascinating new historical clues have led to an interesting new twist to the story. Come discover just what this new theory actually is!
Tickets are by reservation only and are $5 per seat, pay at the door. The presentation will last about 45 minutes. To make reservations, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
