Amazing Space: the Night Sky with noted astronomer John Briggs
The crystal clear atmosphere in the Vail Valley is a perfect place to study the night sky. On any given night in our own backyard, there is an opportunity to witness astounding astronomy.
Join noted astronomer and educator John Briggs for an evening of viewing the night sky in Cordillera and a buffet supper. Using two powerful telescopes, binoculars, and the naked eye, John will share fascinating facts and leave you with a good understanding of what you can see on your own throughout the year. Even in the event of a cloudy evening, there will be plenty to learn by projecting the night sky indoors.
Children are welcome to join their parents/grandparents.
This Walking Mountains Science Center EdVenture was offered in partnership with the Vail Valley Foundation and Cordillera Golf Club.
