Stargazers can share a wrangler’s perspective on the wonders of the night sky with the favorite men in their lives on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19 at 2 p.m. in The Hōkūlani Imaginarium on the campus of Windward Community College. The Cowboy Astronomer planetarium show is a skillfully woven tapestry of star tales and Native American legends, combined with constellation identification, star-hopping, and astronomy tidbits presented from the unique viewpoint of a cowboy who has traveled the world plying his trade and learning the sky along the way.
Through narration by American philosopher/poet Baxter Black, the audience is transported to the Western outdoors, listening to star legends and tales around a campfire. Black shares his insights on the composition of the night sky and the things he’s discovered over a lifetime of stargazing. The Cowboy Astronomer is appropriate for audiences of all ages.
