Thursday Night Astronomy

Our Thursday Night Astronomy program includes an orientation into astronomy, a review of planets, northern lights, and solar systems, a laser guided sky tour, as well as instructions on the use of a planisphere (star map) to find objects in the night sky. Participants will learn how to star hop, tricks for viewing with the naked eye, and have the opportunity to try Bausch & Lomb wide-angle binoculars and observe through the park’s 8″ Dobsonian Telescope.
