Beginners Guide to Stargazing: The Solar System

Tuesday, July 25 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

Join members from the Northwoods Explorers for this fun series!  We’ll cover how stars and solar systems develop, how elements are created, comparison of our solar system with others with size and distance scales using different methods of measurement. We’ll show how to find your way in the night sky using constellations and associated coordinate systems. We explain the different types of stars, the magnitude system, earth seasons, precession, eclipses, moon phases, comets, and asteroids. We’ll describe the planets in our solar system and the best times to locate them using planetarium tools. We’ll describe how to watch Aurora, Meteor Showers, and how to use a camera to gather additional detail.     www.TheNorthwoodsExplorers.org
