A Global Event of Astronomical Proportions, Christown Spectru
Celebrates “International Year of Astronomy”
“Stars Over Christown Spectrum Mall” features worldwide celestial photograph
Adventures for the entire family
09.21.2009 – Phoenix, AZ – In 1609, Galileo’s telescope discovered a whole new
universe filled with images humans had never seen, including mountains and
craters on the moon, stars in the distance and moons around Jupiter. In
commemoration of that discovery 400 years ago, more than 140 countries around
the world are celebrating the International Year of Astronomy in 2009.
Not only is Christown Spectrum Mall participating in the global festivities, but the
center has designed its own stellar initiative called “Stars Over Christown Spectrum
Mall.” Taking place in October, the program will feature a series of educational,
artistic and entertainment elements to appeal to kids and adults alike, including a
limited-engagement presentation of The World at Night (TWAN) photography exhibit.
TWAN is a special project of the International Year of Astronomy and features a
collection of photographs of the world’s landmarks against the celestial attractions.
The best night sky photographers from around the world have captured images
resulting in a traveling exhibit that is being displayed internationally, including
locations in Korea, Germany, Italy and South Africa, to name a few. The exhibit will be
on display in Christown Spectrum Mall from October 3 to October 18.
“‘Stars Over Christown Spectrum Mall’ is an exciting project because it gave us
opportunities to involve an amazing group of community partners to create an
interactive, educational and entertaining experience for our customers,” said
Christine Hands, general manager at Christown Spectrum Mall. “The World at Night
exhibit is particularly thrilling, as the United States locations are predominant
