California Academy of Sciences Astronomer Bing Quock has been giving a series of talks on the summer sky at various branches of the Marin County Free Library.  Mr. Quock discusses observing the summer night sky, with emphasis on the visible planets, constellations and selected deep-sky objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies.  This free program is designed for adults and teens as part of the Summer Reading Programs.    

 

There are three remaining Stargazing  programs:

   Monday, July 16, 7:30 pm     Inverness Library

   Monday, July 23, 7:30 pm     Corte Madera Library

   Saturday, July 28, 11am        Novato Library

 

If you would like more information on observing the night sky, check out the subject heading Astronomy—Observers manuals.   You will find titles like Astronomy Manual:  the practical guide to the night sky, The Stargazer’s Guide:  how to read our night sky, and a book for children, Night Sky AtlasThe subject heading Astronomy will lead you to a wide variety of materials on our universe.
