Description

Viewing the Night Sky

James Lowenthal. Professor of Astronomy at Smith College and active in the International Dark-Sky Association

Friday, September 29, 7:15pm

Saturday, October 21, 7:00pm

Friday, November 10, 6:30pm

Saturday, December 2, 6:30pm

James will provide telescopes and help us view constellations, planets, galaxies and stars from our Hitchcock hilltop. We’ll discuss what we are viewing including science facts as well as legends from other cultures that teach deeper lessons about how we can connect with the sky. We, of course, cannot be sure of providing clear skies for viewing so, no matter what the sky conditions, we’ll have additional activities planned to teach you more about the sky. Dress for the weather and be prepared to expand your horizons! FREE, Registration appreciated
