Virtual Observatory Nights

A Picture of the Night Sky

Astronomist Josh Cochran leads aspiring astrophysicists and astronauts on a tour of the night sky! Join us virtually while Mr. Cochran streams lessons from the PSU/Greenbush Astrophysical Observatory for a virtual tour of the night sky! These video podcasts give a tour of the night sky and examples of the objects you can see from your own backyard. Some of the targets include Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the Moon. Josh will also identify key constellations and asterisms that will help you at home, to navigate the sky and observe some of these wonderful celestial objects. These lessons and tours are not to miss!
