Join Astronomer Stephan Martin for an exploration of the treasures of the night sky as we discover the constellations, bright stars, planets, and deep sky objects that fill the evening skies in late winter. During this lively interactive online class, we’ll review the basic use of planispheres, star charts and apps to find our way around the night sky and learn about some of the rich collections of objects that are visible with binoculars and small telescopes. Included in the class is a separate virtual skywatch that you can join from wherever you are to discover the season’s starry treasures.
