6/16/2022 - Stars and Constellations: Current Season’s Sky on July 21, 2022

On Thursday, July 21st, 2022 from 2-3:30pm on Zoom and streamed to the Kingsley Room, join us for a virtual program and learn more about the stars and the night sky.

Join us in this exploration of the night sky. We will examine the moon, planets, and the constellations that are visible this time of year – where they are and how to find them in the sky. We will talk just a little bit about navigating by the stars. While we will focus on the traditional “Western” view of the sky, which is Greek and Roman in origin, we will also briefly explore the diversity of the night sky by seeing one or two constellations from other cultures around the world.

Brian Koehler graduated from St. Joseph’s College (NY) in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Secondary Education.
