"The Longest Night: A Winter's Tale" at the Faulkner Planetarium.

Winter is cold, dark time, a time of rest. This modern-day folk tale follows a family of storytellers who come to a village to tell tales on the longest of nights. They tell tales of old, of mirth and of laughter; tales of the moon and stars; tales of beasts, and heroes brave. The young girl and her grandparents rely on the generosity of others, but alas, these villagers have little to share.

Setting out on a simple quest, the young girl comes across a mysterious, but knowledgeable, old woman. Why must winter be so cold and dark? “Only if the fire is rekindled will the springtime come again” the old woman tells her. The program explores the concept that winter is a time for Earth to rest, in preparation for the new growth of spring.

After the show, a live show presenter takes you on a tour of the current night sky, including tips for locating the planets, how to find constellations, and ancient myths about the stars.
