California Academy of Sciences Astronomer Bing Quock has been giving a series of talks on the summer sky at various branches of the Marin County Free Library. Mr. Quock discusses observing the summer night sky, with emphasis on the visible planets, constellations and selected deep-sky objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. This free program is designed for adults and teens as part of the Summer Reading Programs.
There are three remaining Stargazing programs:
Monday, July 16, 7:30 pm Inverness Library
Monday, July 23, 7:30 pm Corte Madera Library
Saturday, July 28, 11am Novato Library
