Prescott Winter Night Sky


We will explore which constellations, strangely variable stars, planets, and deep sky objects will be visible this winter. There will be tips and tricks for both beginner and expert sky-gazers alike, and real telescopes to look through following the show – weather permitting.

Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1

“Universe Mashup”

We will be showing four different shows across one weekend. Friday evening will feature programs about our Sun and Moon, while Saturday will bring content on planets around other stars and an exploration of the incredible size and scale of our universe.
