POSTPONED: The Western Sky

With Deepthi Amarasuriya and fellow Northwest College professors

Taking into consideration Wyoming and Park County Public Health Orders, the Cody Culture Club has elected to postpone its February program, “The Western Sky,” originally scheduled for February 11, 2021. Stay tuned for re-scheduling information.

At the Holiday Inn
1701 Sheridan Avenue, Cody

Join Cody Culture Club on select Thursdays, January – April. Appetizers and cash bar at every program.

With health and safety precautions in mind, we may need to limit attendance at 2021 events. Please consider purchasing tickets in advance here. Each program is $20 per person.

Do you ever wonder about star locations, constellation names, or the mythology of the night sky? Join Deepthi Amarasuriya and fellow Northwest College professors to learn more about these and other perspectives of the western sky. Stay late for telescope viewing!
