The Current Night Sky

Las Estrellas de las Americas

Orion Constellation on planetarium screen

Long before television, GPS, and street lights, there were the stars of the night sky. Visitors will travel through the seasonal night sky to learn about constellations, hear mythical stories, and observe the magnificent Long Island sky.

"Las Estrellas de las Americas," is a bilingual show that weaves together captivating Latin American mythology through immersive storytelling. Come with us from Long Island to South America as we explore the constellations and hear mythical stories from various South American cultures, as Educator Ines teaches us about stargazing and Greek mythology surrounding the constellations.

"I love stargazing and enjoy learning about the Greek Mythology surrounding the constellations. I was even more curious to learn about Latin American myths and how they relate to astronomical phenomena. Bringing these stories to life helps bring awareness to the rich and exotic culture that’s hidden in Latin America." - Educator Ines
