The Night The Stars Fell
(Dinner Lecture at The Fort only)
Presenters: Dr. Steven Lee and Ms. Bethany Williams
On November 27, 1833, thousands of meteors showered the sky of North America. To the American Indians, it appeared as though the stars were falling out of the heavens. Join Dr. Steve Lee as he explains and celebrate this natural phenomenon (today known as the Leonid Meteor Shower) from scientific and cultural perspectives. The Denver Astronomical Society will set up telescopes in The Fort’s courtyard to view the night sky.
