Online Classes, 2-Night Series

So you've already got the basics of Astronomy down and are looking for a bit more of a challenge. Maybe you have taken our beginners course or have had a fascination with astronomy your whole life. Whatever the case may be, this class is for you.


Join Astronomer Dean Regas as he takes you to the stars and beyond from the comfort of your home with this new, slightly more advanced course. We'll delve into planets and their orbits, cycles of the Sun and Moon, and basics in astrophotography. Warning, there will be math (but not too much and don't worry, Dean'll make it look easy).


This is the perfect course for backyard stargazers high school age and up who are ready to delve into a bit of Astronomy 2.0.


Tickets: $20/household for both nights


The classes will be offered through a Zoom webinar and will be recorded so you can always watch it later.

Join Astronomer Dean Regas from the comfort of your own home for this unique online course.

Galileo Galilei (1564-1641) may have been the first modern scientist. His experimental "show me" attitude was unique in the 16th century. And his scientific curiosity led him to discovery after discovery. From his building telescopes he documented the craters of the Moon, the moons of Jupiter, sunspots, and proved the Earth went around the Sun. But a few others paved the way including Copernicus, Brahe, and Kepler.


Go back to the Renaissance to learn about the people and wild personalities who took the first steps toward modern astronomy.


Cost: $10/household


The class is offered through a Zoom webinar.  Take the class live and get a recording of the class to watch later.
