BJ Harper lecture on the archaeoastronomy of the Americas and ireland
The Winter Solstice rising sun alignment into the chamber of Newgrange is now one of the best known archeo-astronomical phenomena in Ireland. But this event is one of many that take place across the world. Places also seem linked together with mythologies and names.
Betty Jo will draw together threads that connect America, Europe and beyond through our archaeology, mythologies and astronomy.
Followed by tea, biscuits & a chance to exchange ideas, views and experiences.
Betty Joe lives in America and is Vice-President of Fort Wayne Astronomical Society, Indiana, retired Director of Northrop Planetarium radio telescope, active in NASA's Solar System Ambassadors programme, sharing information and enthusiasm about their projects and a freelance astronomy educator. She has also given many talks on ancient cosmology.
