CCAS Astronomer Kent Wallace and President Aurora Lipper will be taking you on a tour of the night sky so you can star gaze right from home!
It’s that time again for SUMMER star gazing! This is the time of warm, late nights sparkling with stars, planets and meteor showers! We are going to focus on objects you can see with binoculars or small telescope.
(Aurora uses Orion’s UltraViews which are excellent for the price!)
We’ll also show you how to use Star Charts to help you navigate and find objects. You can download your sky map free here: Click here to download the current SkyChart (it’s free).
During our time together, you’ll be able to interact with Kent, ask questions, and gain insight on the next objects to search for to take your star gazing to the next level. It will be like watching a planetarium star show only from your computer screen!
Feel free to invite all your friends – we can accommodate thousands of people for our free online star gazing session, so invite everyone to join us! This should be a lot of fun! I am really looking forward to it!
We will bring you you a virtual “tour of the night sky” where you can discover, learn, and ask questions as we go along! All you need is an internet connection. You can use an iPad, laptop, computer or cell phone. When 7pm on Saturday night rolls around, click the link below to join our class.
