People from around the world and through time have seen the same stars but they have seen different pictures in the sky.  Each culture has made up stories to explain the star patterns they saw in the night sky.  Let the Sky Theater take you on an adventure through space and time to discover some of these “Star Stories”.

Turn back the pages of time and witness the ancient wonders of the world as they appeared thousands of years ago. Travel to Egypt to visit the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Great Pyramids, to Persia to see the original Mausoleum, to Babylon to explore the fabled Hanging Gardens, to Greece to tour the Temples of Zeus and Artemis, and to Rhodes to stand in the shadow of the towering Colossus. We will investigate the theories of how these wonders were created, and get a glimpse of some of the universe's greatest wonders.
