Mid-Winter’s Eve at Stonehenge

Wednesday, December 20, 2023
7:00 p.m.

We ‘visit’ Stonehenge on the night before each solstice. Join us for this exploration of the world’s most famous megalith. How was it built? For what purpose? Was it an astronomical observatory, a site for elaborate rituals, both or neither.

The Southworth Planetarium is a proud member of the International Big History Association. We at the Southworth Planetarium don’t just study astronomy. We study existence itself.
