The Night Sky - Unlocking Its Secrets

The night sky holds wonders for the stargazer. How did man discover the solar system or the tilt of the earth's axis? What have we discovered in recent years that can tell us more about our universe? In this course we will examine the planets, our solar system, constellations and the celestial sphere through the principles of astronomy and the fundamentals of celestial navigation using telescopes and the naked eye. Class time will include an outside field trip to the Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club Observatory.
