Class Description

Artist and astronomy buff Halstead takes Studios visitors to the cosmos and back as he discusses what they can expect to see swirling overhead in Key West—and how to comprehend where those objects fit in terms of scale, distance, and location in the night sky. For this session, students will join Halstead on Hugh’s View for an actual observation through Halstead’s high-powered telescope.
