The Friends of Arlington’s Planetarium




Observed in Stone: Archaeoastronomy

Event held on March 24, 2023, 11 a.m. Eastern time

Equinoxes, solstices, lunar standstills, planetary motions: our ancestors encoded their knowledge of astronomy in a variety of monuments. Going beyond Stonehenge Friends' President Jennifer Lynn Bartlett, a professor at the US Naval Academy, will discuss what we know about the astronomical alignments of ancient structures around the world.

This talk is free but Arlington 55+ membership is required. Because these events frequently have a waitlist, early registration is recommended.

The presentation will be at the Lubber Run Center, 300 N Park Dr, Arlington, VA 22203
