~Astronomy Courses for 2018~

Explore the Universe Astronomy Course

By locating, observing and recording 55 of 110 objects you can receive an RASC Explore the Universe certificate and pin, and you do not have to be a member of the RASC. This can be achieved using only your eyes and binoculars, although a small telescope might be required to observe all 110 objects. Please see our page for details.

October 3: Program overview, using binoculars, understanding star maps (star names and brightness)
October 10: Locating constellations, observing the Moon
October 17: Observing the solar system: planets, conjunctions, eclipses, meteors
October 24: Locating and observing stars and deep sky objects: double stars, clusters, nebulae, galaxies

The course is intended for those who are keen enough about learning the sky to go outside at night and actually do it and maintain a record of what they see.
