Join us at the Dark Site for a hands-on course for learning to navigate the night sky. Make sure as always to bring your red flashlights and mosquito repellent and plenty of water, but also be sure to bring a folding chair to sit in, and some paper and pen/pencil. Schedule of activities is as follows:
8:15-9:15 - detailed presentation on general sky mechanics plus a tour of the constellations.
9:15-9:45 - constellation sketching - we will all begin working on the AL's Constellation Hunter program together
9:45-11:30 - everyone will get the opportunity to locate various objects manually using my 10" dob.
The program concludes in time for anyone who wishes to leave at the midnight light window. But of course, anyone is welcome to stay longer and observe.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail) so that we know how many people will be there for the class. Clear skies!
