North Coast Astronomy at Casino Golf Club
January 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Looking through a telescope gives one the opportunity to see wonders that we can hardly contemplate, and places that we came from or may someday go, and in the case of the Moon and one day Mars, places where brave astronauts have briefly escaped the gravitational pull of our planet to set foot upon and in just a few short years will do so once again. So many people have only seen pictures or facsimiles of these wonders on a screen and hardly even contemplated looking up, or have perhaps believed that exploring the universe even by eye is solely the domain of the wealthy or professionals. It is our hope that by showing the wondrous sights of the universe to as many people as possible with real telescopes and eyepieces, not with software or cameras, that we can change this, and perhaps it will help others better appreciate this wonderful planet and the universe around them. It is also our hope that our events can inspire more young citizen scientists to take an interest in STEM careers. This is why North Coast Astronomy takes their telescopes out to the public, so you get the opportunity to look up. Come out to one of our events, we appreciate your support for what we do.
