Gaze at the Stars
Join us for a unique and fascinating look at the world of amateur astronomy on August 24 with local astronomer and astrophotographer Joel Schmid. Joel will be presenting the beauty of our universe and outer space with an informative program explaining objects in the night sky that can be viewed right from our local area and illustrated with photographs taken through his telescope. Be sure to stay for the second half of the program as Joel will take everyone outside for a view of some of these objects though a modern, computerized telescope (weather permitting). Bring along a pair of binoculars if you have one, and you can look for some of these objects yourself as we gaze through the telescope.
