Astronomy 101 (Part 1)

Each night, the stars reveal the entire universe. The ancients described them by the myriad of myths of the gods, and placed them in the sky to remind us of our mortal limitations. Too few people spend a moment to look up, but with Covid restrictions people are looking for new interests in their own backyards. What better time to begin your understanding of the night sky!   

Join Dr. Brian Pihack from the Niagara Centre of Astronomy as he takes you on an extraordinary tour of the heavens over two presentations.
