AVI poster for Legends of the Night Sky...OrionLaser Cuts to the Heart of the Legend

Orion is the featured constellation that students will target in March 2009 during the Globe at Night star count. The star pattern is as much about the lore as it is about the connected dots. In preparation for Let There Be Night, PHM is presenting Audio Visual Imagineering's laser show Legends of the Night Sky...Orion. Thanks go to AVI for sharing their educational yet entertaining laser program with the PHM Planetarium at a reduced cost.
