Course Description

Air quality has temporarily improved with fewer planes in the sky and cars on the road.  This offers us a unique opportunity for clearer views of the night sky, and here’s a course designed to help us take advantage of them. 

Dr. Berryhill will guide us into the vastness of the universe right from our own backyard, patio, or driveway.  She’ll provide a simple but powerful tool for predicting when each phase of the moon is visible and for when it’s not—the perfect time to look for meteors.  

Allow OLLI and Dr. Berryhill to make your home sky gazing experience richer and more interesting.  No special equipment is needed, but if you have your own telescope or binoculars put them to use.  The air is clear, so seize the day—well, the clear nights! 

This lecture will take place ONLINE and will be available to everyone remotely.  Only residents of Mastick Senior Center, may access it there.  No one from outside of this community may be on site.
