A Trip Around the Sun: A monthly series of presentations and observing

Night Sky Class

As each month passes, the sun “moves” to a new sign of the zodiac, and our evening sky reveals a new region of our universe for us to explore. This year we are offering a series of twelve evenings of exploration at RFO, called “Your Universe”. Each month will be dedicated to a different zodiacal constellation and its neighbors, planets, prominent deep space objects, and just enough astrophysics to bring it together.

The presentations will begin at dusk. Afterward, weather permitting, we will step out under beautiful dark skies to locate the constellations and other objects discussed. Then we will move on to RFO’s three main telescopes for deeper examinations.
