CCAS club president Aurora Lipper together with NASA Solar System Ambassador/CCAS club member Brian P. Cox will take you on a tour of the night sky.
In addition, CCAS member Kent Wallace will share astronomical insights throughout the presentation.
Brian will also share live telescope views (weather permitting) and provide a briefing on NASA’s Lucy mission to Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids.
Our telescope targets will be:
- M4 Globular Cluster in Scorpius
- M20 Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius
- M8 Lagoon Nebula in Sagittarius
- NGC 6992 East Veil Nebula in Cygnus
As part of the presentation, the team will show you how to use Star Charts to help you navigate and find objects. You can download your sky map free here:
