"SEASON OF LIGHT" MOVIE IN THE PLANETARIUM: The EMU Planetarium presents an all-new show just in time for the holidays on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 2 p.m. & 3:15 p.m., in the Planetarium, located at 402 Mark Jefferson Science Complex. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door, at any EMU ticket office, online at www.emutix.com or by phone at 487-2282. The show is open to the public.

For questions or more information, please call Norbert Vance at 487-4146 or email Tom Kasper at email@example.com. Visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/EmuPlanetarium.
"Season of Light" traces the history and development of many of the world's most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminaries in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah. Show dates and times
The show also recounts the historical religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice — not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. It also takes a look at some of our more light-hearted seasonal traditions: from gift-giving and kissing under the mistletoe, to songs about lords a-leaping and ladies dancing, and the custom of decking the halls with greenery and candles. St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, and Santa Claus all drop by as well.
Naturally, there is some astronomy in "Season of Light". Audiences learn a selection of Northern hemisphere winter constellations, and find out why we even have seasons, as we demonstrate the Sun's path across the sky throughout the year, and the Earth's tilt and orbit around the Sun. And of course, the program explores the possible astronomical explanations for a "Star over Bethlehem" in the last quarter of the show: comets, meteors, novae and supernovae, and planetary conjunctions. Appropriate for all ages. Run time is 36 minutes. Each “Season of Light” show includes “Seasonal Stargazing” with a run time 15 minutes.
