Viewing the Night Sky

December 7—7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

James will provide telescopes and help us view constellations, planets, galaxies and stars from our Hitchcock hilltop. We’ll discuss what we are viewing including science facts as well as legends from other cultures that teach deeper lessons about how we can connect with the sky. Dress for the weather, bring a flashlight, and be prepared to expand your horizons!

This event will be held rain or clear. Indoor astronomy activities will be planned in case of cloudy or inclement weather.
