Stars of the Season: Exploring the Autumn Night Sky with Alexandra Trunnell

Main content

Submitted by Anonymous on

Join astronomy teacher (and Somerville resident!) Alex Trunnell at the Central Library for a 90 minute program including a presentation and (weather depending) an observing session where we will have the opportunity to view the wonders of the autumn night sky!  

This program is open to all ages, but the information will be best geared for school-age kids through adults. We'll begin the evening with a presentation and STEAM activity on constellations, and then head outside in hopes of viewing Jupiter, Saturn, and more through a 9.25” telescope! 

Please be sure to include your contact info in case of changes with this event due to weather.
