Join Planetary Scientist Erich Karkoschka to learn how to observe deep-sky objects in the night sky, whether using the naked eye, binoculars, or a large telescope. Karkoschka will explain observing methods and will describe which objects you can expect to see under the darkest skies and which can be observed from light-polluted towns. Learn about the type of information needed to find deep-sky objects, how to locate objects using finder charts, and which observing techniques are needed to see enhanced details.  A sky atlas is an excellent tool and Karkoschka will explain why using his book, Observer's Sky Altas. Learn from the speaker's extensive observing experience as he shares a few stories from his career as a professional planetary scientist.

Amateur astronomers can contribute to science and perhaps make discoveries too. Karkoschka will provide examples of how amateur astronomers can work to contribute to society without having the education of a professional astronomer. The key is having creativity, dedication, and patience.

The meal is served as a buffet, offering a variety of options to cater to different dietary preferences, including gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan choices.
