Find your way around the night sky as we examine the many constellations and learn how to discover where a planet will be on a given night. Following classroom instruction, we'll carpool to a "dark sky" observing site, where we can examine the night sky with minimal light pollution and through a telescope (class is timed for a spectacular view of Venus and Jupiter). We'll also cover what to look for in a telescope and other equipment. Each participant will receive a star chart and planisphere, essential for stargazing. Please bring a flashlight, and binoculars if you have them. In the event of overcast weather, class will be rescheduled for Saturday, April 25 (you will be notified).
