Skywatchers of Central America

Skywatchers of Central America

One of the world's most amazing civilizations was the Maya. In this exciting exploration we demonstrate the strong connections between the Maya creation story, the stars and planets, Maya kingship and ritual war, writing and the Dresden Codex, counting, architecture and the ball court. The planetarium takes the students to the land of the Maya of 1200 years ago and the sounds of the great city of Tikal under a star-filled sky.
