Visual Astronomy  

Learn to recognize some of the objects in the beautiful nighttime sky! Emphasis will be on viewing the solar system and the brighter constellations with binoculars and telescopes. The class will travel outside the city limits to eliminate street light interference. This is a fun course to just enjoy the night sky. No tests! No homework! The instructor will provide the telescope and star charts. For the first session, class will meet at Great Basin College. Subsequent meetings will be on North 5th Street for the viewings. There may be an additional field trip as well. (Transportation is not provided.)
