Trail Astronomy on the SHT with AstroBob
March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This webinar will soar into the skies to discuss stargazing and sky watching on the Superior Hiking Trail. AstroBob will teach us how to spot “the green flash,” Northern Lights, meteor showers, identify constellations, and much more. He will also share his favorite sky watching tools like planispheres, sky charts, and new phone apps that identify constellations.
