If you have ever wondered what constellation you were seeing in a dark sky, or why things change during the night and the seasons, then this program is for you! We will look at actual meteorites, learn to predict what will be in the sky by computer or paper computer, learn about constellation mythology as well as model some of the things whirling around out there that we don’t often see! If we have good weather we will look at the brighter planets in the sky and also the constellations. Senior Girl Scouts can also work on your Sky badge!

Astronomy-trained program aides: This event is for you, too! Come increase your astronomical knowledge and have some fun helping younger Girl Scouts discover the mysteries of the sky above! We’ll see you out there!
