About the Program
During this 2-hour Elachee Nature Science Center astronomy education program, learn to set up and use a telescope, then embark on a guided tour of the night sky to see the first quarter moon and bright seasonal stars.
Most meaningful for adults and children aged 8 and older.
Bring a flashlight and pencil.
*NOTE if you plan to bring your own telescope:
- Participants will need to know how to set up, use and manipulate their own telescopes if they participate in BYOT
- Naturalists are only technically familiar with Elachee telescopes and are not guaranteed to have any knowledge of each individual type brought
- Program is not intended to be a ‘how to use a telescope’ course, but an astronomy program. We are providing the low light pollution setting along with a guide for what can be seen.
