Backyard Astronomy

Have you ever looked up on a dark night and wondered what bright star that is? Or why does the moon look so HUGE tonight? Or made a wish upon seeing a shooting star? Well, there’s a WHOLE LOT going on up there on any clear night. Join us on Wednesday, July 24 at 6:30 p.m. as local resident Stephen “AstroGeek” LaFlamme presents highlights from forty years in amateur astronomy.

You can be an astronomer from home, too! Did you know you can check out a telescope from the Ames Free Library? Place a hold on it here.
