Navigating by the Stars

Polynesian Voyagers: Navigating by the Stars
Cost: $10 ($5 for Members)

For centuries, sailors have been looking to the stars to find their way across the oceans. But the stars can be used in many different ways. Polynesian navigators were just as effective as Europeans, but their strategies were unique. Join us for a unique stargazing and navigational experience, as we learn about navigational techniques from two cultures, and our friends from the Virginia Living Museum help us find the important stars in our night sky.
