Astronomy Program

May 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

What is the difference between an emission and a planetary nebula? A galactic cluster and a globular cluster? These deep sky objects along with types of galaxies will be discussed. All of these objects will be viewed during the year. Telescopes will be provided for everyone’s viewing when it gets dark. Anyone who has their own telescope or binoculars are encouraged to bring them.To protect the night vision of viewers, participants should cover flashlights with red cellophane. Latecomers should dim their headlights. For those who want to come early, there will be a very casual discussion regarding your question thoughts and ideas on astronomy and space exploration.

In case of inclement weather, the presentations in the classroom will still be held, but the telescopes will not be set up.
