In the Christian and Catholic faiths, the date for Easter is set around the full moon and Spring. Why is that, and how did it come to be that Easter Sunday, unlike Christmas, is not the same day every year? Come learn about the astronomical roots of Christianity in the Jewish tradition, which influenced the establishment of Easter.
Outdoor observing afterward, weather permitting.
