As a designated International Dark Sky Community, the Village of Hawthorn Woods invites you to enjoy the lovely night sky while exploring the joys of stargazing. All ages and families are welcome!
In this program, you will learn how to operate a telescope, about night sky navigation and preservation, how to identify the constellations, and the impact of light pollution. This class will be held outside just after sunset at Community Park. Handouts will accompany each class to reinforce information discussed. In order to participate, face coverings and physical distancing are mandatory. One registration fee per family. Instructed by Jim Stewart, Hawthorn Woods resident and astronomical enthusiast. Please feel free to bring along your binoculars!
September 30 – October 21 Thursdays, 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Community Park Fees: $25/Res; $35/Non-Res Code: 3186
