The Friends of Arlington’s Planetarium




Telling Time

Event held on March 31, 2023, 11 a.m. Eastern time

Having recently sprung back for Daylight Saving Time, have you wondered how our approaches to timekeeping have evolved from observing the Sun, Moon, and stars to using atomic clocks. Join Friends' President Jennifer Bartlett, a professor at the US Naval Academy, for an exploration of the astronomical, cultural, political, and technological factors that produced our current conventions for telling time.

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 Langston-Brown Community Center, 2121 N Culpeper St, Arlington, VA 22207.
