Explore astronomy over two nights! Learn what to expect from firsthand views of planets, star clusters, nebulae, and (if we’re lucky) a galaxy or two. Meet in the theater for an informal presentation on day one, then gather for a night of stargazing from Hugh’s View using a quality amateur telescope.
Specific topics include but are not limited to the following:
– How all of these celestial objects relate to each other within the “big picture” of the universe as a whole.
– Where and how to find these objects in the night sky.
– The basics of how to use, what to look for, and what to avoid when considering an amateur telescope.
– Recent areas of interest in the science of astronomy.
