So much observation of our daytime and nighttime skies can be done without a telescope. Michelle Nichols from the Adler Planetarium will present an overview of celestial observations you can do with just your eyes, including Moon phases, eclipses, planets, stars, and much more in a session suited to an astronomy novice. We'll end the evening by gathering outside (weather and skies permitting) in the southwest corner of our parking lot to see deep sky objects through powerful telescopes set up by members of the Northwest Suburban Astronomers Club.
