Astronomy: Beginning Observational Astronomy/Atmospheric Optics

Fun and Recreation

If you have an interest in the night (or daytime) sky, this class will allow you to better understand what you see. You will explore some concepts of celestial mechanics, types of objects to view day or night, and equipment that can be used to enjoy the sky. This class will help you enjoy the sky without special equipment, use the equipment you already have, or select equipment to buy if you want to take your interest to the next level. The class is updated to include information on astronomical events coming within the current year. Bring a laptop, tablet, or smartphone if available.
