Sky-viewing Event for All

Mar 26, 2009

April 2, 2009
8:30 p.m.
North side of Currens Hall


Let us celebrate the international year of astronomy doing exactly what Galileo Galilei did 400 years ago - look at the night sky through his telescope and learn some astronomy. Feel free to bring your own telescope.

Highlights of the event:
Spectacular view of the Moon
How to spot the pole star
The Orion Constellation

In case of inclement weather the event will be moved indoors to Currens 205 for a movie showing.
