Once again, on November 19th, 2023 from 6:00pm – 7:0pm, Amy Sayle and the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center have hosted storytellers from the School of Information and Library Science’s Story Squad to share celestial folktales from around the world under the brilliant night-time sky as projected in the Planetarium’s full-dome theater. Five storytellers shared tales from China, native North America (Paiute), Russia (Siberia), Polynesia (Tonga), and North America (Appalachia). Attendees were treated to stories about the Milky Way, the moon, the North Star, and Orion.  Now when they get outside the lights of Chapel Hill and look up at the stars, we hope they will remember the stories and see the constellations with new eyes!
