Dennis Herrmann
Tuesdays, February 2 – March 8 (six weeks)
6:30 – 8:00 pm (held at Kent County High School Planetarium)
Lecture/Discussion
Starting with the current spring season (March) and proceeding through summer, fall and winter seasons, students will be guided to learn and identify 25 major seasonal constellations by means of interactive discussion with handouts and the use of the planetarium sky and specific slide images. In addition, students will “tour” the entire Zodiac constellations and study the North Star and the circumpolar constellations surrounding it. Outdoor observations with unaided eye and telescope will be included.
