Exploring the Winter Skies at Amerind with Bill Buckingham

Friday, February 4, 2022

6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Experience a guided tour of the Arizona winter skies, find your way among the constellations, and use binoculars to view deep space wonders and explore the mountains and craters of the Moon. Guests are often surprised just how much you can view without a telescope! Learn how to identify and remember the winter constellations, while learning some of the unusual mythology associated with these constellations. Be prepared for upcoming meteor showers and eclipses. Several handouts will be provided, as well as warm beverages.

Participants should bring their own binoculars. Although any kind will be helpful, 7×50 or more powerful, will be best. Also, be sure to dress warm for a possibly chilly evening outdoors. Please note, the program will only be held if skies are anticipated to be clear this evening. A postponement of the program will occur if the program is unable to be held due to cloud cover.

Bill Buckingham has been providing educational astronomy experiences including programs, workshops, and interactive exhibits since 1982 for families and schools in a variety of museum, planetarium, and observatory settings. He is currently a manager at the Kitt Peak National Observatory. His most recent position was directing a NASA visitor center.

The price is $30 per person. The tour will be limited to 20 guests, with 8 spaces available to Amerind members at no cost. Space is limited and is on a first-come-first-served basis for both paid and free slots. Amerind members must call 520-586-3666 to reserve their free space.
