Rick Gering from the Naperville Astronomical Association (NAA) introduces a collection of celestial targets that can be seen using telescopes, binoculars or even the unaided eye even in skies that never become truly dark. Learn to recognize the phases of the moon, the planets, seasonal constellations, magnificent star clusters, and tinted double stars from your own backyard using the start charts provided. If weather and clouds permit, join us outside to view some of the sky’s most impressive marvels through NAA members’ telescopes. Dress for the weather. For ages 11+.
