Learn to Star Gaze with UW Space Place – Mon., Oct. 14, 6:30-7:30p.m

Warner Park Community Center, 1625 Northport Drive
http://www.cityofmadison.com/parks/play/learnto.cfm
Have you ever gazed up into a clear sky on a dark night and wondered what all those celestial constellations were and how to identify them? Or maybe you just wanted to get a closer look. Please join us for a free workshop hosted by Madison Parks and led by UW Space Place for this session that begins just after sunset with a 20-30 minute talk and slide show about astronomy. At the conclusion of the talk (if the sky is clear) we set up one of the moderate aperture (8"-10") telescopes and provide park visitors the opportunity to view whatever astronomical objects are available. All ages welcome.

    A brief, but useful introduction to identifying constellations. Thanks for finding and sharing this class, Sue.

    Room was packed. But I did learn a thing or two. Hope those that came were able to look through the telescopes they had setup outside.

    I showed up to this event but left 10 mins after I arrived as the room was jammed packed with little kids and the room did not accommodate the audience size. Great topic though.

      Sorry Stacy. They seemed to have a room conflict as they were scheduled for a larger room.
