Thursday’s Along The Horizon

11/30/2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Thursday's along the Horizon at Mystic Seaport Museum

Join us this fall where the sea meets the sky. Mystic Seaport Museum’s newest exhibit, “Alexis Rockman: Oceanus” and the Museum’s Treworgy Planetarium connect in our new series of after-hours evening programs. Each Thursday night program will include the following elements:

– We will begin with after-hours exploration of the “Alexis Rockman: Oceanus” exhibit

– In the gallery, we will present a short talk about two of the exhibit’s art pieces. Each week, we will focus on two different works. The gallery talk will link the theme of the “watercolors of the week” to a related theme in Astronomy

– We will then walk to the Planetarium for the second half of the night

– At the Planetarium, we will share a 30-minute fulldome movie projected onto our dome. The movie each week will also connect to the theme of that week’s gallery talk.

– We will then share a short, live presentation about the current night’s sky using the Planetarium’s 60-year old star projector.

– Weather permitting, the night will conclude with an outdoor telescope observing session.

– If the weather does not allow for night sky observing, we will provide an extended version of our indoor live star show.

These are five separate programs that will happen on Thursday nights, and each program will run from 6:30-8:30 PM. Here are the different themes for the five nights:

October 19: “Spiral and Vortex”

November 2: “Moving Across a Dynamic Earth”

November 16: “Human Influence”

November 30: “Nature Endures”

December 14: “Life Against All Odds”
