And the Winner Is...

Congrats to AMU Space Studies student Anthony C. Liggins, who won first place in the "Pages of Stars” competition sponsored by the Astronomical Observatory Serafino Zani and the International Planetarium Society’s Mobile Planetarium Committee. 

 

Anthony won for his voice, narration, and fun take on his unique adaptation of Phaethon’s Ride by Ovid (Classical Greek Legend). This global competition aims to build a collection of short audio clips that can easily be read or performed under a planetarium dome. 

 

The text will be published in the IPS Journal, Planetarian, and Anthony will receive an Award Certificate on the Day of Planetaria on May 7, 2024.
