When Wanderers Meet: The Great Jupiter-Saturn Connection
Jennifer Johnson Associate Professor of Astronomy
Occasionally, the planets do align. On December 21, 2020, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn will bring them close together in the constellation of Capricorn, their closest approach in our sky since 1623. Jennifer will talk about the motions of the planets in our solar system, how we see them on the Earth, and why we sometimes get lucky enough to have two beautiful planets together.
Labyrinths, Solstices, and Phenology, Oh My!
Jim Chatfield, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist, Horticulture
Dan Herms PhD, Former Professor and Department of Entomology Chair; currently the Vice President of Research and Development for The Davey Tree Expert Company.
From Chartres to Chadwick, from Equinox to Solstice, to the phenological link of biology and environment, the “everlasting vision of the ever-changing view” is of great import to lovers of plants and the nurture and enjoyment of nature. Let’s chat! This won’t be complete without an appearance of Dan Herms speaking to the Phenology and Solstice Pavilion at Chadwick’s Secrest sisteretum at OSU-Wooster.
