Zili Misik is one of our favorites. They bridge cultures, generations and continents with rhythmic-infused Brazilian and West African music. These powerful Haitian, all female songs are sensual, political and self reflective. We love this band. The Caribbean, African and urban jazz will be in your soul

MARK ANDERSON: THE DAY THE WORLD DISCOVERED THE SUN

Date: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 11:00am
Program: 

The passage of the planet Venus across the face of the Sun as seen from Earth is called “the Transit of Venus”. It is the rarest eclipse in our solar system and occurs typically only twice every century. In the Eighteenth Century, it was of critical importance to observe and carefully measure the Transit of Venus because it would allow a more precise measurement the distances of the planets from the sun.  More importantly, these numbers could be used in calculating nautical longitude. The country that could best measure longitude ruled the seas.

Thursday, July 5, 2012 - 7:00pm
