Astronomy On Tap: Polynesian Navigation

Today, GPS instruments take people safe to their destinations, but in a not so distant past navigators from the Pacific Islands used the stars. Today we still learn from their journeys.

Navigating by the stars through the seas, how did these early navigators do it? How can this inform the way we look at the world today?

Ticket price includes refreshments and a glass of wine or beer on arrival. Cash bar available.
