Today when we see a phenomenon in the sky like a lunar or solar eclipse, we know what's happening and just how amazing it is. Can you imagine what went through the minds of our ancestors when these events happened in the distant past? What did they think was happening back in the days when they were sure the earth was flat and suddenly a comet appears in the night sky? 

Here is your chance to find out with this installment of the Texarkana College Distinguished Lecture Series, "Omens In The Sky" with professor of physics Delbert Dowdy at Texarkana College on Tuesday, March 6 from 6 - 9PM inthe Stilwell Theatre 2500 N Robison Rd, Texarkana, Texas 75599.

Professor Dowdy has taught physics and astronomy courses for more than 30 years and I'm sure will open your eyes about the nature and causes of these celestial events, the effects they’ve had on our planet, what effect they have had on human history, and what we can expect in the future.

This is a free lecture and open to the public. For more information, check out their Facebook events page here.
