The Spectacular Winter Sky

Local amateur astronomer Bob Fisher will present a program exploring the natural wonders of the Winter night sky, arguably displaying the most beautiful bright stars compared to any other time of the year! Star maps will be distributed focusing on scientific background and where to locate these objects. We will then go outside to observe the real thing under the extraordinary light pollution free sky of the AIC! Highlights will be: telescopic views of The Great Nebula in Orion, The Pleaides, and Jupiter with its four Galilean moons along with many other celestial wonders. If you have binoculars, telescopes bring them; if not, just your eyes and curiosity will be enough to enjoy this wonderful sky show! Please call or email to register.
