Our Place in Space

November 15

Earth’s return address in the Universe wouldn’t easily fit on an envelope. You’ll leave this stellar conversation with a better appreciation for where we fit among the stars. Confirm your understanding about some of the big concepts of size and scale, phases, eclipse and tides, rotation vs revolution, astronomical units, light years and more!

Observation and laser constellation tour afterwards, weather permitting. Dress for the weather, it can be COLD observing in November.

Class will take place rain or shine.

All ages.
