What a great place to really look at the stars, on top of a mountain. Winter Park Resort is offering free Star Safaris tonight and next Thursday from 8:30-10:30pm where you can look through high-powered telescopes and use a laser to pinpoint stars and planets. The speakers are eager to share their knowledge about the science of the stars. The program is free. The only thing you will need to bring is warm clothes and your love of the night time sky. It can still get chilly in the mountains after the sun goes down.
The speakers will be professors from the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
- 7/16 Dr. John Bally
- 7/23 Dr. Fran Bagenal
