Event Recap: Making a Solstice Star with MoMath

On Tuesday, December 22nd - the shortest day of the year -  over 350 math enthusiasts of all ages joined the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) and the Flatiron Partnership to create a colossal seven-pointed star using glow sticks.
Not only was the star to celebrate the Winter Solstice, but it also drew inspiration from Flatiron's 2015 Holiday Installation - Nova.  The angles of the seven-pointed star (26 degrees) corresponded to the highest angle created by the sun as it rose over New York City that day.
