Það sem verður gert

Have you ever wanted a private tour of the cosmos? In this experience we'll use a giant 16" Dobsonian Telescope (and a few other specialized scopes) to view the craters of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the tendrils of star-forming clouds in the Lagoon Nebula, and even the swirling mass of stars in the Hercules Cluster! As the sky changes throughout the seasons, we'll focus on seasonal highlights.

You'll learn to identify prominent constellations, find the North Star on any night of the year, and most importantly you'll get to view deep-sky objects like nebulas, galaxies and star clusters (affectionally known as 'faint fuzzies') through a high-end telescope that's larger than an adult! Short of renting out an observatory, this is the best sky viewing you can get.

The experience is guided by a knowledgeable amateur astronomer with a background in physics and engineering who also leads a local astronomy club. You'll learn about the science behind what you're seeing, along with ample time to hone in your visual observing skills to tease out finer details in the eyepiece, and learn a few pro tips along the way! Unlike a large public star party, you'll have plenty of scope time, and you'll see objects that typically are considered too challenging to see without practice. You'll have access to a premium collection of eyepieces and filters to enhance the views that 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!

Staðsetning

We'll meet at a local city park with wide open spaces and almost no artificial lights, plenty of room to view almost the entire night sky!

Aric was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome right away. After introductions he immediately told us what was possible to see tonight and that we’d be able to look at any specific thing, given the right conditions. We were incredibly lucky with the night sky tonight and were able to see Jupiter and Saturn in amazing detail. Aric himself was very knowledgeable and good with conversation. He was able to answer many of my questions and was enthusiastic the entire time. My friend and I will for sure be visiting again someday, maybe sooner then later.
