The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, September 27, 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.
