In Night Lights, unusual star myths take us on a multi-cultural voyage across the heavens. The collection Diane has gathered teach about easily observed celestial phenomena like the origin of prominent constellations, and significant ‘night lights’ like Morning Star and North Star. Complemented by a humorous legend of the origin of fireflies, this program is well-rounded entertainment. Enjoy it in any indoors venue or bring it to an outdoor or nighttime setting as a special treat. Listen in wonder as tales from Greece, Estonia, Native America, Kurdistan and Korea celebrate the magic of the night sky.
