$53

with Ted Elliott

We’ll have three exciting oppositions to look forward to this spring. Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars…one after the other! Instructor will bring a telescope to class to discuss how it works and the class will venture outside to see the exciting, bright, spring stars. Participants will need to purchase and bring “The Stars: A New Way to See Them”. This is the world’s best introduction to the constellations. We’ll look at or discuss the Zodiacs and the solar system, along with some history of astronomy as well. Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, and Libra are all out during class this time of year. Learn the beauties and subtlety of the night sky and you won’t be the same! Binoculars would be helpful! We may be able to squeeze in a visit to the Colby Observatory. Limit 6 students.
