Course Description: What star is that? How can I find the Orion constellation? How can I spot the International Space Station? This program is an introduction to observing and enjoying the night sky. Through multi-media presentations, beginner stargazers will see how the sky changes with the seasons and learn the stars and constellations that are prominent throughout the year. Learn how to observe the planets, double stars, star clusters and galaxies. The selection and use of binoculars and telescopes will be covered. If the sky is clear, class time will be spent outside observing through binoculars and telescopes. We will even take astrophotos with digital cameras!
