Description: Join professor/astronomer Mark Freilich for an exciting evening of star gazing. See the moon up close, learn about and view the Orion Nebular, the Pleiades Star Cluster, and Deep Space Phenomenon. This program includes an indoor interactive question and answer session on basic astronomy, fun and games followed by outdoor viewing using a professional telescope. Participants are welcome to bring their own telescopes and binoculars. Dress warm! While this is an adult program, children ages 9 and up are welcome to attend as long as they are accompanied by a participating adult. Funded in part by Capital One Bank. To ensure the quality of all astronomy workshops the venue reserves the right to cancel if the weather forecast calls for rain.
