Astronomy Night | Zodiac Constellations

August 28, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC-6


Zodiac Constellations? Wait, are we talking about astrology or astronomy? Come learn about the Zodiacs, what they represent in astronomy, how to find them in the night sky and what Greek myths you may have heard about them.

ACES invites you to Hallam Lake this summer to look up and learn about the night sky! Each evening starts with a 15-minute lesson covering basic astronomy concepts such as life-cycle of a star, reasons for meteor showers, Zodiac constellations, or how phases of the moon work. After the mini lecture we will gather outside for the stargazing portion of the evening. Aspen High School Astronomy Club member Ricky Wojcik or other local astronomy enthusiasts will be on-hand to guide you through the phenomena of the mountain night sky.
