This Dark Sky Observations course is in partnership with Antelope Island State Park, and will take place on November 15-17. The course will begin at 1:00pm on Friday, and end around 2:00pm on Sunday. Activities will go late into the evening, and you'll have an ipportunity to camp on Antelope Island State Park if you wish. We will share the specific schedule of the course as we get closer.

 

You will be given access to the Dark Sky Observations online course one month before the start of this field course, and you will be required to complete the online course before attending the field course.  

 

This is an adult education program that is open to participants 18 years of age and older.  Exceptions for teens as young as 15 may be made if a parent/guardian is also registering for the course.  Please email Mark Larese-Casanova at marklc@usu.edu if you would like to bring a child as young as 15.

 

Course Description
The Utah Master Naturalist Dark Sky Observations online course is a new course to help increase the awareness and understanding of the importance of dark skies.  Come explore the solar system with us as we learn about the planets, stars and constellations, and the ways that we can help protect our dark skies.  You'll have an opportunity to learn how to operate a telescope as we observe the night sky. 

 

Dark Sky Observations was created to help meet the growing demand for trained staff and volunteers to provide dark sky programs for astrotourism. The course is the result of years of work by several cooperating agencies, including Cedar Breaks National Monument that developed the Master Astronomer Program, Utah State Parks, and Utah Master Naturalist.    Class size is small in order to maximize your opportunities for learning and having fun!

 

Each Utah Master Naturalist course consists of 40 hours of instruction, with approximately 16 hours covered in the online course, and the remaining 24 hours spent outdoors in a field course.  Field course activities will include instructor-led discussions, guest presentations on relevant resource issues, small group activities, and open discussions.
