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 to view the moon, Saturn and Mars). 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. Robert has a BA in physics; he presents programs on physics and astronomy for Clark Planetarium in Utah's school districts. In the event of overcast weather, class will be rescheduled for June 13 (you will be notified).
