Event Details

Stars of the Pharaohs takes the audience back some 6,000 years to the land of ancient Egypt and the stars that trekked across its desert skies. Using the Imaginarium’s multi-media projectors, this planetarium show reenacts the mythological creation of the Egyptian universe and discusses the celestial connections of the many pyramids that stand sentinel to its ancient history. The audience will be guided around the early Egyptian constellations and learn how the Sun, Orion and the ancient Pole Star were used to align their monumental temples and pyramids. The journey through this ancient culture will showcase the earliest calendar ever devised—one based on the rising of the star Sirius and its ability to predict the annual flooding of the Nile River. Stars of the Pharaohs, which was originally produced by the Buhl Planetarium, has been modified by Windward Community College’s Imaginarium to include visually rich graphics from Evans and Sutherland.
