Schedule a Skywatch

Are you a teacher? Scout Leader? We offer skywatch sessions, free of charge, for any educational purpose. We’ll bring one or more telescopes, depending on the size of the crowed. All ages are welcome.

Before the observiing, we’ll go over how to orient yourself to the night sky, using a printed skymap. Then, we’ll point out objects of interest with a laser, so eveyone can see where to look in the sky. Skywatches usually wrap up after about an hour, although we’ll usually stay as long as people are interested.

We can also offer Zoom sessions. Just send an email to education@richastro.org
