Dr. John Stocke, a retired CU Boulder Professor of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, will be joined by Australian storyteller and educator Paul Taylor to present "Aboriginal Skies" at Fiske Planetarium. Taylor and Stocke will explore the creation story and ancient rock art describing Aboriginal beliefs about the heavens. The planetarium projector will then be used to show the sky the way the Wardamans view it, based on research done with Bill Yidumduma Harney, Senior Elder of the Wardaman people of the Northern Territory in Australia.
