 SPEAKER:
Dr. Danielle Adams
TITLE:
Camels in the Sky: Our Heritage of Arabian Star Lore
ABSTRACT:
 Dr. Danielle Adams will speak about the rich star lore of Arabia as it was more than a thousand years ago. Camels, vultures, goats, wild cows and many other kinds of animals graced the skies of the Arabian desert, and some of these survive in the star names used by astronomers today. Danielle will especially focus on the stars that are visible in November so that guests can find them after the talk. Some of these stories can be found on her website, onesky.arizona.edu.
