Cedar Park Summer Course

June 11, 2015 Uncategorized 0

It has been a great turnout for the 3 class summer course in Cedar Park.  The last few weeks the students have been charting the moon and taking altitude and azimuth measurements. Tomorrow night we’ll get to share moon calendars and model the moon phases.  Saturn is now up near Sagittarius and able to see! The first class we learned about the immense size of our solar system by taking a solar system walk. The second class we all modeled the seasons with our bodies and learned about why the north star changes.  We also have begun to become really proficient at using the telescopes.  Looking forward to a great last class tomorrow night.
