Mount Washington Observatory Star Party Astronomy Workshop: Saturday, September 24th
Join the Mount Washington Observatory and the "Sky Guy" and UNH Astronomer John Gianforte on Saturday, September, 24th (cloud date: Sunday, September 25th) for a two-part astronomy workshop hosted at the Weather Discovery Center and the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road. The indoor session from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM will include a presentation covering everything from how to make an "astronomer's flashlight" to how to use binoculars at home to observe the night sky. From 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM the Star Party will be in full swing as participants can try their hand at astrophotography with a tour of the stars above.
This workshop is for ages 6 + through Adults. No experience with astronomy is necessary! No equipment is necessary either; however, if you have binoculars, a single lens reflex camera or have your own telescope, bring it along! Participants are asked to bring a flashlight with fresh batteries and warm clothing for the Star Party.
Fees for this workshop: members of the observatory $75, non-members $105. To register click the "register" button above or call 603-356-2137, ext. 211.
