Space scientist Dimitri Klebe will demonstrate how telescopes work and how they are used to gather data as he shares an overview of the formation of stars, galaxies, and planets.

The class will experience stargazing away from city lights with a field trip to the Mount Evans Outdoor Education Laboratory to use the twenty two inch research grade telescope.

The session will begin September 29 and end October 8. Classes will meet Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Cost is $150/member; $180/nonmember.
