Stargazing: Past and Present

Stargazing: Past and Present

Jan. 2020 - May 2020

Library Main Level

Humans have been gazing upon the stars since ancient times. Musselman Library’s Stargazing exhibit takes you from Mayan astronomers in 3114 BCE, to Gettysburg College’s first observatory and guest registry of 1874, to the present day selection of Special Collections “heavenly” rare books, many formerly in the collection of Laurence Marschall, Professor of Physics, Emeritus. The Stargazing exhibit, located in five display cases on the main level by the apse, will be available to view now through the end of the spring 2020 semester.
