Join Us at the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium for an Unforgettable Event
“The Fire of Creation” explores the many facets of one of the Western Hemisphere’s most misunderstood and intellectually-advanced cultures, the Maya. Astronomy was incredibly important in the everyday lives of the Mayan people, whether in the realms of religion, agriculture…or war.
From a general understanding of the creation stories found in the Mayan 'Popol Vuh,' as well as a discussion of the many ruins of Mexico and Central America, the true story of the Mayan people can emerge. Part of the planetarium’s cultural astronomy series, “The Fire of Creation” includes stunning fulldome images taken from the ancient Mayan cities of Tikal and Chichen Itza.
