Flagstaff Star Party guests can expect an inspiring journey to discover the astronomical knowledge of
ancient Arabia and its enduring heritage in some of the star names we use today. Cultural Astronomer Dr.
Danielle Adams, Lowell Observatory’s chief marketing and revenue officer, will use the slow darkening of
the twilight sky to showcase the importance of dark skies to the development of the rich cultural traditions
