Special Program in December


“Keep Looking Up!” by Pastor Gary Fugman
“Myths of the Winter Sky…and the Star of Bethlehem”
People attending Northeast Nebraska Astronomy Club (NENAC) in Lyons and Decatur in past months have requested a special program this December.  On Friday, December 13 at 7pm at the Lyons Library and Saturday December 14 at 7pm at the Decatur Sears Center (please note date changes) Pastor Gary Fugman will lead a discussion on the myths of constellations such as Andromeda the Princess, Aries the Ram, Cassiopeia the Queen, Cepheus the King, Cetus the Whale, Gemini the Twins, Orion the Hunter, Perseus (our hero) and Taurus the Bull.  Most ancient cultures saw pictures in the stars at night.  These constellations in our night sky give us insight to to their cultures…and understanding of similarities to ours!
Also, the mystery of the Star of Bethlehem, the sight that led the wise men to the infant Jesus Christ, will be discussed at December’s NENAC.  The mystery of that star still fascinates us today!
More about constellations and the Star of Bethlehem in next week,s edition.
Mark your calendars for December 13 and 14. For more information on this and future NENAC programs call Pastor Gary Fugman at 349-1953 or google “nenacstars” and  Keep Looking Up…and Merry Christmas from your neighbors at NENAC!
Question to Consider:
Look up at a constellation this evening.  Do you think the brighter stars in the constellation are the closest stars?
