VIRTUAL ASTRONOMY – NATURAL WONDERS – FREE!

Session 1 – “The Night Sky, the Grandest Illusion” - Wed, March 31, 2021
Why look up? What we appear to see is not what is really happening. Let's use some basic shapes and brighter constellations to unlock the reality of what we observe in the skies above.
Session 2 - "The Solar System, Many Natural Wonders” – Wed, April 7, 2021
A Grand Tour of our planetary system. We will compare mythological ideas versus modern observations. What are those mysterious lights that have attracted our attention for thousands of years?
Session 3- "The Milky Way, the Grandest of Wonders" – Wed, April 21, 2021
How do I view the Milky Way? What are its basic structures? Use constellations as a guide to find our galaxy and prepare for that dark sky view that amazes all.
