Planetarium Show: “Tales of the Maya Skies”
$2 for children, active military & senior citizens
Free for ASU students, faculty & staff
In a story that weaves together a rich combination of Mayan science, culture and legend, we learn how the Maya were able to make sense of an ever-changing world, and through their extraordinary understanding of mathematics and astronomy, to predict events far into the future - even to 2012.
This beautifully illustrated story reveals how the Maya scholars developed a sophisticated understanding of astronomy, architecture and mathematics that enabled them to predict solstices, solar eclipses, weather patterns and planetary movements, and through this knowledge, make sense of the world around them.
