Welcome to the Milky Way

Schoodic Institute 9 Atterbury Circle, Winter Harbor, ME, United States

An estimated 75% of the world’s people cannot see the Milky Way – our home galaxy – because of urban light pollution. But here in Acadia, it shines brightly on clear nights. The collective glow of its 200+ billion stars arches from horizon to horizon. Astronomy volunteer Richard Luecke will explain our current understanding of the Milky Way, our place in it, and how you can view and appreciate its splendors. His image-enhanced presentation will acquaint you with some of our galaxy’s most stunning features.

We will meet in Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus from 7:30pm – 8:30pm on Sunday, August 25th. Weather permitting, attendees will then be invited outdoors for a laser-guided tour of the Milky Way and viewing through a large astronomical telescope (8:30pm – 10:00pm).

Space is limited! Please register below.
Cost: $15.00/person or $50.00/family of up to four
