Includes equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

For astronomy, depending on the location, I often start with an energetic indoor presentation and answer many questions. Afterwards, we'll go outside under the stars and use a telescope to get close up views. I will use a laser pointer to guide the viewers across the heavens pointing out planets, galaxies and constellations with their unique legends. I will offer some mind bending information on our solar system, our galaxy and our universe.
Other things to note
Bring binoculars if you have them.
