Star Gazing -- Backyard Astronomy with your Library Telescope!

  • Willard House and Clock Museum 11 Willard Street North Grafton, MA, 01536 United States (map)

Members from the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. will offer a family friendly indoor PowerPoint presentation to introduce visitors to finding celestial objects from their own backyard using a simple technique called star hopping. We will talk about the Library Telescope Program, offer tips on astrophotography and finding bright planets and star clusters!

Aldrich volunteers will also display two tables of space artifacts, meteorites, Mars Soil Simulant and offer free handouts to attendees!

All children who attend will have opportunities to win small spacey door prizes.

Outdoor Star Gazing will be held after the program if the weather permits!
