Talk | Ancient Egyptian Astronomy

Arthur Harvey from Perth Observatory Volunteer Group (POVG) will discuss the way the ancient Egyptians observed and measured the night sky, and how that information was used to create their timekeeping and calendar. It is the basis of the calendar we use today.

Ancient Egyptian temples and pyramids were constructed with an accurate alignment to the cardinal points and various stars; Arthur will discuss how this was achieved. He will also talk about the legacy the ancient Egyptians have left us, the OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft, and its ambitious journey to the asteroid Bennu. There will be time for Q&A.
