Introducing our RSE; Resident Space Expert Dean! Beth and Dean enjoy;

  • Reminiscing about what each of thought when we looked through a telescope for the first time, and last year’s Great American Solar Eclipse!
  • Understanding the difference between seeing something in the night sky and looking at something in the night sky
  • Highlighting all the many types of telescopes, places to look through a telescope FOR FREE, and where BIG observatories can be found if you really want to see deep into space!
  • What are some of the objects we can expect to see in the next couple of summer months…STAR PARTIES!!!!!
 

“I want to teach the art of seeing an object. Any one can look, but when you’re interested, you’re seeing (an object) for what it is.”

Dean Mikolajczyk

“Once you see Saturn, you’ll be hooked. It’s just majestic. The crazy thing for us astronomers, is that it IS that exciting every time you look. And the more you look, the more you learn.”
