Find the Stars, Constellations, and Planets: No Batteries Required
June 27, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
GVSU Professor Douglas Furton will lead this workshop focused on how to use a planisphere to predict the positions of the sun, stars, and planets any time of the day. A planisphere is a celestial slide rule of sorts, a paper-and-pencil tool that sets up a map of the sky past, present and future. Planispheres will be provided, bring only your thinking cap and curiosity.
