Summer Backyard Stargazing

With relatively warm, lengthening nights and one of the best meteor showers of the year, the months of August and September are a great time to check out the night sky, even if it's just from your backyard with no fancy equipment. Students will leave this class prepared to observe the season’s major celestial landmarks and events visible with the unaided eye – including individual stars, constellations, another galaxy, planets, the Moon, and the Perseid and Delta Aquarid meteor showers.
