Stargazing is a fun, all-ages, and life-long activity, especially as we live in an especially spectacular natural dark skies location of the nation!In this 1-hour presentation, Sammy Castonguay (Treasure Valley Community College Astronomy Instructor, Friends of the Owyhee Program Director) will give an introduction to natural night skies with some basic stargazing tips. Then, we'll study some of the zodiac constellations: Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces! All ages are welcome to attend.

Natural Night Skies are very special. In this short presentation, we want to share a couple of Night Sky Constellations and Stars visible in our area. Have a notebookhandy and go outside after the talk to see it for yourself!
