Having trouble telling Orion’s belt from Cassiopeia’s throne? Does looking at the night sky cause you to scratch your head in wonder? Then we have the answer for you! The Manitoba Museum is hosting a four-evening adult program on the basics of astronomy and navigating the night sky. Eyes to the Skies will take participants on an in-depth tour of our night sky including constellations, planets, the Moon and much, much more. No previous knowledge of astronomy needed!

Using images and video, hands-on demonstrations, handouts and the unique Digistar 5® technology of the Planetarium Star Theatre, even the most beginner of stargazers will be able to navigate the night sky like a pro by the end of this course.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE A TELESCOPE SEMINAR

Saturday December 1, 2018 – 1pm-4pm

Location: Auditorium

Selecting a first telescope is like buying a car: there’s no “best” model, but there is one that best fits its owner. Learn the basics of telescopes and what to look for when selecting a first telescope, whether for yourself or as a gift. See different telescopes up close, learn what accessories are useful, and ask questions.

 

HOW TO USE YOUR TELESCOPE SEMINAR

Saturday February 9, 2019 – 1pm-4pm

Location: Auditorium

Learn how to use your telescope, whether it’s a new holiday gift or one you’ve had for years. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate the basics of telescope set-up, use, and maintenance, and provide time for some one-on-one demonstration using your own telescope.
