Road Map to the Night Sky
Location:Presidio Visitor Center
Type of Event
The night sky has filled humans with wonder since the dawn of our existence. Even Ohlone Native Americans have their own story of how the stars came to be! The Presidio provides a spectacular night sky environment to learn about and identify stars, constellations, planets and deep space objects. Join Ranger Nate for a 1 1/2 hour program that begins with a presentation in the Presidio Visitor Center to gain a basic understanding of the night sky and continues with an outdoor observation session on the Main Parade Ground where we will identify celestial objects. We'll also use some astronomical tools to help "magnify" our experience! In case of clouds/fog, the indoor portion will continue as normal but the outdoor portion will be cancelled. Appropriate for all ages. Max 30 participants.
Reservation or Registration: Yes
