Stonehenge Scholar



The Southworth Planetarium started its Stonehenge-Solstice lecture in June 2008.   In that year and in the one following, we offered a "Mid-Summer's Eve at Stonehenge" program on the night before the summer solstice.    The program was so popular we added a "Mid-Winter's Eve at Stonehenge" program in December 2009. 

Now, the Stonehenge lectures are a celebrated planetarium tradition.  Around each solstice, we offer a special Stonehenge presentation.    The tradition began with Physics Professor Patrick Peoples.     After Prof. Peoples' retirement in 2011, Lawrence "Crocodile" Price became the new Stonehenge Scholar.
