Stargazing for Beginners

Course Overview

Find your way around the night sky by learning the bright seasonal constellations, current planets and satellites. Understand how planets and Moon move, the reason some constellations are visible in one season and not another and where Earth fits into the big picture. We'll begin with a classroom session on campus, take a dinner break and then weather permitting, we’ll go out at night for close-up looks of the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn, and a rich assortment of star clusters and nebulae through the telescope. Class will be held even in the event of inclement weather.
