Stars Over Schoodic

August 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

August 19, 2022, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
As darkness falls over the Schoodic Peninsula, the Milky Way arches across the sky from horizon to horizon. Suspended within its pale glow are late summer’s most prominent constellations.

Guided by astronomy volunteer Richard Luecke, take a tour along this river of starlight, through Perseus and Cassiopeia in the northeast, to Cygnus the Swan hovering overhead, and down through Aquila, Zeus’s pet eagle. Each has a story to tell.

This event, appropriate for ages 10 and up, features a 50-minute image-enhanced presentation and a 30-minute outdoor laser tour (weather permitting). Bring binoculars, if you have them, and dress warm. Meet at Schoodic Institute’s Wright Hall, Room 114.

Space is limited. Register online here: https://schoodicinstitute.org/event/stars-over-schoodic-3/. Cost: $25.00/person or $50.00/family of up to four.
