Það sem verður gert

If you've ever been transfixed by the beauty of the night sky but aren't sure how to figure out what you're seeing, look no further! Apps and online resources can be overwhelming and difficult to get started with, sometimes it's just more enjoyable to have an experienced guide offer a personal touch that gets you up to speed quickly. In just one session, you'll learn how to get oriented under the night sky, find planets on any night, identify key constellations, spot the International Space Station and Hubble Space Telescope, and visually climb the "cosmic ladder" from Earth's surface out to the Andromeda Galaxy 2.5 million light years away, all without any equipment whatsoever! Sessions are completely interactive, with plenty of opportunities for questions and sidebars. You'll be equally at home whether you're just beginning or would like a refresher in stargazing. While not required, if you have binoculars we'll do a hands-on demonstration together to make sure you're getting the most out of them, and even cover how to select your first telescope if you'd like to further pursue your interest in astronomy. You'll be provided with resources to continue learning past our session together, come away with a new network of friendly stargazing enthusiasts, and be able to identify iconic sights in the night sky that very night!

I have been in love with the night sky since I was a kid, and been active as an amateur astronomy for 20 years. I host community astronomy events and science outreach programming in the Denver area, having partnered with city parks, libraries and local cultural societies to bring the joys of stargazing and science to a broader audience. I hold degrees in both Physics and Mechanical Engineering, and worked for Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co. as a systems engineer on numerous NASA programs, and I enjoy bringing a science-based perspective to a wide range of topics. I often incorporate first-hand experiences and commentary in our sessions as we explore the night sky and discuss the science and technology implications surrounding the cosmos, in ways you may have never imagined. The universe is infinitely fascinating, let's talk about it!

Our family loved Aric’s stargazing experience. We gained tools and resources to help us navigate the night sky, from any location. Aric is great to listen to, well spoken and polite. He’s professional, friendly and super knowledgeable..a great host. Highly recommend falling in love with stargazing.

Fantastic personalized teaching. Re-ignited my interest in the celestial life. Excellent tips/tricks for setting up telescope and finding new discoveries. I highly recommend this experience.

Aric really knows his stuff! We have no prior experience with astronomy but now we are all set to get started with just binoculars. We learned a lot - super interesting!

We really enjoyed our time with Aric. It's 100% clear how passionate and knowledgable he is about stargazing! He made sure to personalize the experience for us and was very patient in answering our questions. He also shared lots of great resources with us, so we feel ready to start our stargazing adventures :) The sound and his setup were also really professional. Would definitely recommend this experience!

Loved this experience. Aric is a terrific teacher that covers a lot of ground but in a very personable way. I don't have a technical background but I've wanted to get into astronomy for a while now, I've seen a lot of these topics (star finding, telescope use, astronomy apps, etc.) covered elsewhere but never understood it as clearly. There are lots of visuals and animations that make even complicated things easy to follow. Aric was great at fielding questions and keeping things interactive. He responded to my questions while keeping things on track and was also great at steering the program based on my inputs, felt like a personal tour rather than just watching a lecture. After this crash course I feel ready to keep going with astronomy on my own, there's a lot to know but this is probably the best introduction I've seen. Well worth it!
