Night Sky Navigation Workshop


Join us for an introductory workshop in night sky navigation! Paul Ricketts, Director of the University of Utah's Observatory, will guide us in learning to use star maps to locate objects in a telescope. We will have 5 telescopes available so everyone has the opportunity to gain hands-on experience.

Note - Our previous 3 attempts at holding this event have been cancelled due to cloud cover! We hope that spring will bring clearer skies, but please check your email the afternoon of the event in case we have to cancel and refund you.

Be sure to register to ensure your spot!
