This one-evening course provides everything you need to learn the constellations and find your way around the sky. You'll learn to identify the most important constellations in the night sky, and how to use them to locate star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies you can see with the unaided eye or binoculars. We'll help you demystify the motions of the night sky by explaining the patterns or cycles that make it all work.

Topics include:

- What's Up there? Our place in space

-Constellations: How to find them (or make your own)

-Basic sky motions; how the stars rise and set, how they change with the seasons

-Star maps and how to use them

-What can I see tonight?

Introductory-level courses are conducted as an online Zoom meeting. You will need a device and an internet connection to participate.

Introductory courses are $20 for Museum Members and $25 for non-members.
