Class Description

Artist and astronomy buff Larry Halstead takes Studios visitors to the cosmos and back. On night one, students meet in the theater for a presentation on what to expect and how to comprehend where these celestial objects fit in terms of scale, distance, and location in the night sky. The next night, use a powerful telescope on the roof for direct observation and stargazing.

Please note: schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions
