Seeing Cosmic Wonders

May 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Instructor: Doreen Forsythe

This is a Great Courses DVD presentation by Astronomer Alex Filipenko (the same presenter as the Intro to Astronomy Course) that teaches how to look for certain phenomena and how noticing them can enrich one’s experience in looking at the world. It invites participants to “step outside at any time of day or night, look up and see the world filled with limitless wonders: majestic rainbows, dramatic cloud formations, stirring sunsets, intricate constellations, captivating solar eclipses, and even the distant planets themselves. These are the result of breathtaking natural phenomena.” The program will be supplemented by information from Solar System Ambassador, Doreen Forsythe.
