Description

For thousands of years, Africans have used their knowledge of the sky to build their societies, shape their spiritual lives, and meet their physical needs for survival.

Skywatchers of Africa highlights the diversity of African astronomy, examines cultural uses of the sky that developed throughout history, and celebrates our shared human experience.

Skywatchers of Africa is an original production by the Adler Planetarium and was adapted for fulldome by the Sudekum Planetarium at Adventure Science Center.

The show is available in both full digital and hybrid versions. The hybrid version allows for all star fields to be provided by an optical star projection synchronized with the digital images.
