Planetarium Show: “The Cowboy Astronomer”
$2 for children, active military & senior citizens
Free for ASU students, faculty & staff
Enjoy this skillfully woven tapestry of star tales and Native American legends, combined with constellation identification, star-hopping and astronomy tidbits — all told from the unique viewpoint of a cowboy astronomer who has traveled the world plying his trade and learning the sky along the way.
The basic premise of the show is simple: we’re in the Western outdoors, listening to star legends and cowboy tales around the campfire. Our cowboy astronomer gives us his perspective of the night sky, and the things he’s found out over a lifetime of stargazing.
The show ends in a thoughtful, philosophical manner, as our cowboy muses about the constellation where he wants to head when he departs this Earth.
