Postponed: Oh My Stars! Under the Suburban Sky
Time & Location
About the Event
You may know that coyotes and wild turkeys can be seen in the suburbs, along with elusive orchids and migrating monarch butterflies. But the stars? Surely the city lights are too bright! Indeed, they are brighter than they should be. Nevertheless, every major astronomical phenomenon – from glittering star clusters to ghostly galaxies – can be viewed from the suburbs, if you know where and how to look. Science teacher Joshua Roth will use a mix of colorful slides and hands-on activities to bring the stars down to earth. Weather permitting, we’ll mix indoor learning with time under the skies of early Spring. Dress warmly and bring binoculars if you have a pair. Sponsored by a grant from The Cummings Foundation.
