“Winter Stars and the Mariner” at Treworgy Planetarium at Mystic Seaport Museum

The earlier sunset in the winter season provides even more time for stargazing! Join us for an overview of the winter night sky, starting with locating the Big Dipper and using this shape to find the North Star, Polaris. Once a sense of direction is established, we will locate other well-known constellations and shapes like Orion the Hunter and Taurus the Bull. We’ll also keep an eye out for any visible planets—mostly Jupiter and Saturn, but Mercury can also be seen for part of the season. We will pay a visit to our closest neighbor in space, the Moon. And finally, we will explore ways in which sailors used the night sky to navigate the open ocean.

Maple Days! - Old Sturbridge Village

For many at Old Sturbridge Village, the first whiff of spring isn’t the aroma of spring flowers – it’s the smell of wood smoke and maple syrup, a sure sign that the sap is rising and spring is on the way. Join us for “Maple Days” on select dates in February and March, when the Village’s working sugar camp demonstrates maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century New England. See the entire sugar-making process, from tapping the trees to “sugaring off,” and learn why maple sugar was more commonly used than maple syrup in early New England. Costumed historians will also cook period foods made with maple products and the tinner and cooper will make maple-related items.
