Visual Astronomy  

Learn to recognize different objects (stars, planets, satellites) in the nighttime sky! Emphasis will be on viewing the solar system and the brighter constellations with binoculars and telescopes. For the first session, class will meet at Great Basin College. Subsequent meetings will be short field trips outside the city limits to eliminate street light interference. (Transportation is not provided.) This is a fun course to just enjoy the night sky. No tests! No homework! The instructor will provide the telescope and star charts. Please note, all nighttime viewings are weather-permitting. Contact Continuing Education for specific dates and times, as information published on our website may change.
