Denise Navetta

Denise Navetta has a degree in special education, and has dedicated her life to educating people about animals and the environment. She has been active in the Pagan community for over 15 years, and especially enjoys presenting at events like Starwood because of the opportunity to mix the science with the magikal aspects of the world around us. You may know her as "the Animal Lady", but now she is also known as the "Star Lady". This year, Denise will offer a glimpse into the universe with her state of the art planetarium program. She will utilize a digital star projector to transport participants into the universe...and beyond.

Starlab Planetarium

An opportunity to explore the night sky from the comfort of an inflatable planetarium. The program will start off with a slide presentation about our solar system and beyond. We will then explore the night sky...We will start with the sky enhanced with artwork, to represent the constellations, and explore the myths and legends of several cultures. Then, we will look at the night sky without the artwork, to help participants learn to find constellations and stars on their own. We will experience a meteor shower, a trip to Saturn, and a black hole. You will then have the opportunity to “make requests” for journeys to galaxies, planets, nebulas and star clusters. Pleiades anyone? After our explorations using the planetarium, we will use chants and drum to project us on a meditative astral journey beyond the grasp of the Earth, to explore our spiritual connection to the universe.
