Two Small Pieces of Glass: The Amazing Telescope

If you are thinking of buying a telescope, this is a great show for you.  The history of these amazing tools is covered in this fulldome movie, which includes a brief star talk.  Originally  produced for the 2009 International Year of Astronomy.

The Cowboy Astronomer

October: Saturdays at 12:30 pm.

We’re in the Western outdoors, listening to star legends and cowboy tales around the campfire. The cowboy talks about star colors and temperatures and we see how blue stars are hotter than red stars.  We find the Andromeda Galaxy by hitting a first-base foul out of the Great Baseball Diamond In the Sky.  We learn about young stars and supernovae, and the star cluster many call the Pleiades.
