Join us online to learn basic astronomy that you can do on your own from your backyard!

We'll be hosting introductory astronomy courses every other Tuesday at 3:30pm EDT. They'll give you the tools to learn astronomy on your own at home, along with some observing goals to try. All you need is your computer! A pair of binoculars will help, but are not necessary.

Safely Viewing the Sun
• Have you ever seen the Sun? Of course you have. But have you ever been able to safely look directly at the Sun? The Sun has begun to acquire spots now that it has passed through solar minimum. We’ll go over how to get into safe solar viewing, including how to use filters to safely see it with a telescope or binoculars, how to make a pinhole projector, and what features to look for. Then you'll be ready to view the partial solar eclipse that will be visible in much of Canada on June 10!
