An Eyes-Only Tour of Spring’s Night Sky
Thursday, March 6 at 7pm
Step outdoors with the CNY Observers (www.cnyo.org) and learn about the late Winter/Spring constellations, their origins, and how to navigate the Night Sky using the six constellations that are visible year-round. Free. No registration is required.
Centuries before automated GoTo telescopes or phone apps were invented, constellations served as the amateur astronomer’s map of the heavens. Many telescope observers and binocular sky hunters still prefer the “age olde” method of learning the positions of nebulae, clusters, and galaxies based on the bright stars these objects reside near - all of which become much more easy to find once you associate these bright stars with their mythological characters.
This program is part of the Liverpool Public Library’s Unplugged Month.

From USA Today: “Crossword puzzle fans have a delightful doodle to work out on Google’s home page through the weekend.
In honor of the 100th anniversary of the crossword puzzle, the Google home page is an interactive crossword puzzle.
The Washington Post has the skinny on the behind the scenes effort for the puzzle, which was created by well-known puzzle-maker Merl Reagl.
Newspaper editor Arthur Wynn is credited with publishing the first crossword puzzle on Dec. 21, 1913 in the New York World.
According to the Post article, Google is not providing an answer key, “instead counting on the passion of fans to share their answers on YouTube and elsewhere.”
The New York Public Library recommends the best children’s books of 2013 in this interactive guide.
