RASC National Society: The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy - Canadians in the Stars and Summer Planets Preview (ONLINE)

The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, July 5, 2022 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

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

We'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. Sessions are always on Tuesdays at 3:30pm ET, but frequency of sessions changes.

• We'll focus on the objects in the sky and on the moon that celebrate the many Canadian contributions to science and astronomy.

• The bright planets are available for evening viewing! We'll review the retrograde loops, oppositions, and their meetings with stars and deep-sky objects for the rest of 2022, including a preview of the December Mars opposition/lunar occultation. In Messier Minutes, we'll focus on the northerly summer Messier objects in Scutum, Sagitta, and Sagittarius.
