Planetarium Speakers and Performances

Mid Summer’s Eve at Stonehenge

Thursday, June 20, 2024 7:00 p.m.

On the night before each solstice, we present our Stonehenge lecture. Was Stonehenge an astronomical observatory, a ritual center or both…or neither?

Lawrence Price, the planetarium’s Stonehenge scholar, guides this virtual tour of Stonehenge on the eve of the summer solstice.
