Progress Report: Tyler Nordgren Interview
On Friday, November 6th we had the opportunity to interview astronomer, artist, and the author of both Stars Above, Earth Below and Sun, Moon, Earth— Tyler Nordgren. Tyler was a fount of information regarding the stars. He told us about the history of astronomy, including when the practice of watching the stars to see patterns and tell time transformed from astrology in to the beginnings of the science we know today.
Again, we learned more about the different myths surrounding the Pleiades and Tyler gave us some insight in to maybe why there are so many similar myths about that cluster of stars!
Tyler blew us away with this interview, you can find him on Twitter @NightSkyPark and you can find his art and books on his website.
We shot the interview among the beautiful landscape of Ithaca, New York, and this interview was shot by the talented Shai Ben-Dor.
Shai can be found on Instagram @sbendor1 and you can check out his work on his website.
This is another interview we can’t wait to share with everyone in The Stars at Night, so if you haven’t already, please join our email list, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to stay up to date with our progress!
