The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Join us online to learn basic astronomy that you can do on your own from your backyard!

We'll be hosting introductory astronomy courses every other Tuesday at 3:30pm EDT. They'll give you the tools to learn astronomy on your own at home, along with some observing goals to try. All you need is your computer! A pair of binoculars will help, but are not necessary.

All About Meteor Showers and Meteorites - Chris Vaughan and Bryon Czarnik
• When better to talk about meteors and meteorites than on the peak of a meteor shower? Tonight is the peak of the Leonids Shower, and we'll be talking about what makes some meteor showers better than others. We'll be joined by expert guest Bryon Czarnik who will talk to us about how to find, identify, and even buy meteorites. We'll have lots of time to answer questions and will go over some astronomy highlights coming up in the next two weeks, too!
