Guest Speaker Night – Yukon Astronomical Society

February 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

The Yukon Astronomical Society welcomes its guest speaker, Professor Wayne Horowitz to talk about ancient Babylonian Astronomy, and present his lecture:

“The Wagon, The Wagon of Heaven, and Yahdii: The Babylonian Constellations and Northern Skies”

Location: Yukon College, Room A2406

Wayne Horowitz is Professor of Assyriology at the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research focuses mainly on the religions and traditions of the Ancient Near East thousands of years ago, but an ancient drawing of the Babylonian Moon has brought him in recent years to Northern Canada and Alaska.

Professor Horowitz is back in Whitehorse this February, and kindly accepted our invitation to speak at our astronomy workshop.

Entry by donation only.
