An astronomy expert will give our group a tour of the current night sky using an 8-inch reflecting telescope. We will see the moon, current planets, and deep-sky objects (galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae) with the telescope. Using a green laser, the guide will point out constellations in the real sky, and share a star story or two.
