Course Overview

Would you like to find your way in the winter night sky? Have you ever been so overwhelmed by the dark sky carpet of diamonds that you couldn’t even locate the Big Dipper? If you have an eye to squint and an arm to point, you are good to go! This three-evening course will help you see the constellations and their whereabouts without telescopes or smartphones. If you can find the North Star, you can find your way home!

Each evening we will have lecture and coursework for one hour, including physical representation of the 12 signs of the zodiac, planets, moon, etc., and why we see them at certain heights in the sky at different times each year. The second hour we will step outside for practice.

Binoculars are optional – 7×50 are best for night viewing. Dress in multiple layers!
