A Tour of the Universe from Your Backyard (Reading Room)

Saturday, August 17

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Starting at Earth and exploring into space, learn about interesting astronomical phenomena and objects to see in the summer sky right from your backyard with and without a telescope.  Get a sense of the vastly different sizes of and distances between them.  We’ll find out about Earth’s shadow, Sun dogs, rainbows, Moon halos, satellites, meteors, Moon, planets, Sun, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies…

We will also introduce you to the Library’s “hold-able” telescope so that you can review all of it’s components and then plan to check it out for personal use in the future.
