Beginners Guide to Stargazing: The Universe

Tuesday, August 8 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

Join members from the Northwoods Explorers for this fun series!  We’ll explain and examine the evidence that supports the Big Bang, Dark Energy, and Dark Matter theories. We’ll explain Quasars, Active Galactic Nuclei, Galaxy clusters, the great attractor, super clusters, and the size and scale of the observable universe compared to the entire universe.  We’ll show why certain times of the year are best to observe distant objects using binoculars or a small telescope. There will be a few handouts related to the information presented along with references for further study.  www.TheNorthwoodsExplorers.org

Registration required by 8/6.  Tuesday, 5:15 – 6:30 PM.  $10/Non-Member and $7/Member.  Participants will meet in the Forest Room in Discovery Hall at the Discovery Center.
