Participants listen to Aidan Temperino ‘21 of Plymouth, N.H., and Maggie Phelan ‘20 of Lewiston, Maine, present inside the Ladd Planetarium in the Carnegie Science Hall during the Bates College Astronomy Night Extravaganza on April 2, 2018. "Our presentation focused on the changing of the sky as each season changes here, so one of the big things we wanted to have people walk away with was learning what causes the seasons here in Lewiston cause we are fortunate to have all four seasons," says Temperino.

"The line going vertically across is the meridian and that one shows the latitude in the
sky which also corresponds to our latitude on earth and the other one was the ecliptic which is
the suns path throughout the year during each month. So at the peak of each month that would indicate noon and that would show us how high the sun is in the sky," says Phelan.
