The Universe is a big palace, and professional astronomers can t keep track of everything. A lot of science is still done by amateur observers using backyard telescopes and binoculars - even the unaided eye! In this workshop, you ll get an introduction to scientific observing and learn about some science projects you can start tonight with your binoculars or small telescope.
