Astronomy Department Events:
Astronomy at the West Valley College 21st Annual Powwow
Saturday, October 6, 2012
Native Americans have rich mythologies to explain the comings and goings of the Sun, Moon and stars. Join the WVC Astronomy Program for a 35 minute presentation in the campus Planetarium, located in room SM37, at either 2, 3, or 4 p.m. as we look at the stars and recount native American myths of the heavens. Presentations may draw upon myths from the Yurok, Karok, Kiowa Apache, and other tribes. Seating is limited.
Check out the slideshow from our field trip to Pinnacles National Monument. Sign up for Astronomy/Geology 12 for our trip this Spring 2010. Update: Due to the cuts in the college budget, this class will not be offered this spring of 2013.
