Friday June 5th at 8pm.

With the current state of Covid-19 group activities are still difficult and should be avoided. Luckily astronomy is something we can enjoy at a safe distance! This episode of the GLASroom will focus on what you can observe in the night sky with the naked eye, binoculars, or even a small telescope. While large telescopes are crucial for research, they are not necessary to explore the night sky in your backyard.

Let’s stay connected during this time of social distancing. We are successfully streaming planetarium shows as a way to keep people looking up and learning about astronomy. Every week, see what’s new in the sky and explore an astronomy topic in-depth with GLAS staff and astronomers.

You can watch all of our previous episodes here or on YouTube and don’t forget to join us live every Friday night! As long as there is an advisory to stay home and be safe we will be streaming with new content every week.

You can subscribe to our YouTube page or submit the form at the top of the page to get regular updates about our programs.

Upcoming Show:

Travel through the solar system and beyond, at any time of day or night. Planetarium shows feature interactive photos and videos.

Next Show
