Reimers Observatory astronomy educators will introduce the science of astronomy though observing the planets and other celestial objects through our two large telescopes. Attendees will learn how a telescope works and how to use a telescope for night time observation of celestial objects. Attendees will learn ways we can decrease light pollution and its effects on humans, wildlife and insects. Attendees will submit night sky darkness data for the Globe at Night citizen science campaign. Attendees will also learn about opportunities to partner with Reimers Observatory to bring astronomy outreach to their classes and schools. Transportation to/from Reimers Observatory will be provided. Bus will depart St. Edward's visitor parking lot at 8:15 pm and return at ~11:45 pm. Please note that due to transportation and registration costs, supplemental pay is NOT provided for this experience; you will still earn HCP credit.
