RASC National Society: The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy - Galaxies in Plain Sight (ONLINE)

The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 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.

Register here! Videos will also be livestreamed to The RASC YouTube Channel.

Galaxies in Plain Sight
• It's New Moon time! Usually to find galaxies you have to carefully study a star chart, point your telescope at the right patch of sky, and then try to see and focus on a fuzzy patch amid total blackness. But Chris has a trick up his sleeve! He’ll be helping us easily find galaxies using nextdoor-neighbour stars that guide us right to them. Bring a notebook; you’ll want to go out observing right after this session!

Fee: Free
