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.
