Tea & Topics / Lunch & Learn: Winter Constellations with Scott Nehring

Get on board as we take a journey through the Winter sky. We’ll begin with the constellation Orion to talk about his belt and nebula. From there we will star hop our way to Taurus to visit Aldebaran. We’ll then journey over to the Pleiades and talk a bit about its history and myths. From there we shoot out to Andromeda. Some 3 million light years away, it is the furthest we can see with the unaided eye. Then move on to Pegasus to visit the Great Square. At this point we’ll zoom back towards Earth making a quick stop at Sirius, the brightest star in the Northern Hemisphere, some 7 light years distant. Upon our return to Earth, we’ll spend some time learning about the James Webb telescope, as well as the new Moon rocket (Artemis) that NASA is about to launch into Lunar orbit. Hope you can join the tour.

This program will be available in person at Riveredge AND virtually on Zoom.

Bring your own lunch or a snack to enjoy while you learn.
