The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Join us online to learn basic astronomy that you can do on your own from your backyard!

We'll give you the tools to learn astronomy on your own at home, along with some observing goals to try. All you need is your computer! A pair of binoculars will help, but are not necessary. Sessions are always on Tuesdays at 3:30pm ET, but frequency of sessions changes.

All About Nebulas! - Chris Vaughan
• This episode is all about nebulas! The winter sky hosts one of the most famous and easily seen nebulas for Canadians – M42 in Orion. We’ll break down what nebulas are. We'll describe the different types (emission, reflection, dark, planetary, and more) and what they look like. Then we’ll share how and where to see them - with unaided eyes, binoculars, and telescopes of any size. We might even play “Guess the Nebula” with our viewers!
