The webinar will cover basic types of astronomical objects from small to large, the motions of the planets and stars, and interesting phenomena in the night sky.

This virtual program will be hosted in an online Zoom meeting by staff and volunteers of the Analemma Society. The program runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is designed for participants age 8 to adult. The cost is $6 per person.
