(BEDFORD) - "Heritage of the Heavens: The Night Sky in January" is a free astronomy program that will be presented on Jan. 23 at the Bedford Public Library and led by Monroe Lake interpretive naturalist Jill Vance.

The program begins at 6 p.m. in the library's program room. The program will use stories and images to take participants on a virtual tour of the stars, constellations, and clusters visible during January.

"For thousands of years, people have used stories to explain what they see in the night sky," Vance said. "Those stories are still useful today in helping amateur observers locate objects and remember what they see."

The program is designed for adults and teens, but will also be enjoyable for elementary and middle school students who are interested in astronomy.

For questions about the program, call Vance at (812) 837-9546.
