It's About Space. It's About Time.

We lead busy lives. Our days, and nights, are filled with activities. So much so that we hardly take the time to think about time and how we measure it. We are connected to the daily, monthly and yearly cycles of the Sun, Moon and stars in the most fundamental of ways, yet most of us hardly give any of this a second thought. "It's About Space, It's About Time" examines how people throughout time have used occurrences in the sky to mark the passage of time. Why are there seven days in a week and how did the days get their names? Why does the Moon's appearance change? And what causes the seasons? All these questions and more are answered in the Sky Theater's latest production.
