The Night Sky - Arabic Star Myths

30.11.2022 18:00 - 30.11.2022 18:00

Join us on a voyage around the globe and through the starry sky. Together, we will discover constellations, their myths and astronomical objects in them. The evening sky above Potsdam is full of wonders - even under urban conditions. Soon, we will leave the local perspective: On each of our events during this series, an expert and passionate stargazer will present his/her international perspective on the night sky. Tonight we are going to experience some of what ancient desert travelers in Arabia saw in the night sky. On this exotic journey we're going to travel south and encounter some Arabian legends, and parts of the Moon Stations - an old form of a calendar in Southern parts of Arabia. This event will be presented by Feras Debes Wa Laban.
