AHS science teacher puts your heads above clouds

Joshua RothRoth

Join the Friends of the Robbins Library for a fun evening of astronomy in October.

Believe it or not, every type of astronomical target – from neighboring planets to distant galaxies – can be seen under suburban skies with nothing more than your unaided eyes -- unaided, that is, except for any eyeglasses or contact lenses you may require for distance viewing.

And many of the sights in for which the heavens are justly famous -- such as Saturn’s rings --  can be enjoyed with telescopes that cost less than $200.

Astronomy enthusiast and Arlington High School science teacher Joshua Roth will give a slide-show tour of the universe’s visual delights, emphasizing those that can be seen with the unaided eye and binoculars.

He also will give tips for choosing telescopes, online resources and books on the hobby and science of astronomy. The session will include ample time for Q&A.

This virtual program is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14; it is free and open to all, but registration is required on Eventbrite >>
