Join us on Facebook Live for First Friday! This talk will feature the basics that you need to know to get out and enjoy finding constellations and celestial objects in the night sky. We will be looking at how one begins to make sense of the stars when it all looks like a big jumbled mess overhead. We will briefly discuss the basics of what to look for in a telescope and we will finish by looking into how our ideas of the size of the universe have changed over time with many historical discoveries and how we estimate vast distances today.
First Fridays at Longway Planetarium are funded in part by the Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment Millage. Your tax dollars are at work.
