Special Event — free and open to the public!  Dr. Guilherme Marranghello, Director of the Planetario da Unipampa (a university planetarium in Brazil), will take you on a tour of the constellations visible from the southern hemisphere, as well as recounting some of the Brazilian folk tales that supply the names and stories behind those constellations.

Dr. Marranghello is spending a week at the Casper Planetarium as part of an international exchange program for planetarium professionals.  Don’t miss this chance to experience the stars from a different perspective!
