Astronomy 101: The Winter Night Sky, What’s Up There?
Do you look into the night sky and wonder what you’re seeing? Do you know how to locate the “star nursery” in Orion? Can you find the Winter Hexagon of stars? Do you see bright, star-like objects at sunrise or sunset and wonder what they are? Join us and find out the answers. Weather permitting, most evenings will include viewing through a high-quality telescope. A highlight of the course will be at least one visit to my home observatory in Woodacre. No previous knowledge of astronomy is required for this course, and it is open to anyone who has attended earlier versions.
