Galaxy Slideshow and Starwatch

There are stars out tonight...
Join astronomers Adrienne Cool and Ron Marzke for our annual Galaxy Slideshow & Starwatch. Start the evening with a slideshow featuring bright stars, planets, galaxies, and constellations. Then, head out to view the crispy night skies of springtime. The dark Sierra night offers the casual to expert stargazer a host of opportunities to appreciate, identify and wonder about what’s out there. Wrap up in warm clothes for the outdoor viewing. Use the telescopes provided or bring your own telescope and/or binoculars for viewing. Be ready to be astonished with a high-elevation, sparkling night sky. No experience required; kids of all ages welcome
