How to Use a Star Chart
Jerry Oltion and Andy Edelen
There are dozens — probably hundreds — of star charts to help you identify and navigate your way around the night sky…but how do you actually use one to find an object? Star charts are full of arcane symbols, labels, and lines, the meaning of which aren’t intuitively obvious.
By special request from club members, Jerry Oltion and Andy Edelen will demystify how star charts are designed, and how you can use one to plan and carry out a successful observing session.
Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month at the Science Center planetarium. We start promptly at 7:00, so come early to visit and get a seat.
