North Star and Big Dipper at Badlands Observatory

This evening’s presentation by the CAIRNS director incorporated Lakotan narratives about Red Cheek WOMAN and her son, Fallen Star, and her husband, North Star. Co-owner of the Badlands Observatory, Ron, gave an informative laser-guided tour of the night sky and then he and the other co-owner, Teresa, oriented the telescopes and assisted attendees in seeing the targeted celestial objects. Ron also gave everyone an insider's tour of the big telescope that he built.
