Planetarium Show: Skywatchers of Africa

November 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Explore the skies in Skywatchers of Africa at the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.

For thousands of years, Africans have used their knowledge of the sky to build their societies, shape their spiritual lives, and meet their physical needs for survival.

Skywatchers of Africa highlights the diversity of African astronomy, examines cultural uses of the sky that developed throughout history, and celebrates our shared human experience.

Skywatchers of Africa is an original production by the Adler Planetarium and was adapted for fulldome by the Sudekum Planetarium at Adventure Science Center.

This event is being provided in conjunction with International Education Week, an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of State is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.

Students are encouraged to explore Study Abroad opportunities at SF and discover global conversations in the Developing Global Citizens podcast. Additional opportunities are available to students through SF’s Global Scholars Program.
