Greek Myths in the Night Sky

First presented in 2008 at the University of Southern Maine Southworth Planetarium, this extremely popular program will once again be presented in the Planetarium in the USM Science Building, Falmouth Street, on the

USM Portland Campus. Explore the rich realm of night sky mythology under the stars with Edward Herrick-Gleason, Director of the USM Southworth Planetarium. Within one hour you will discover the stories, legends and lore of the stars and planets. Perseus slays the Gorgon Medusa. Pegasus arises from her blood. Bellopheron tames Pegasus and slays the Chimera. Cassiopeia’s brag becomes Andromeda’s despair. Hera’s wrath becomes Hercules’ labors. Gods and monsters; forlorn lovers and ancient warriors: see them all amongst the stars.
