Press Release ( - LITCHFIELD, Conn. - Feb 11, 2017 - Ever look at the sky and wonder why the stars rise in the East and set in the West? For that matter, why does the Sun rise in the East? Why not the North, or the West? And why does a particular star rise 4 minutes later each day? Are the stars lazy? Here’s your chance to find out how the sky works. In this talk we’ll answer these questions and many more. No prior knowledge of astronomy is required – just curiosity.
