Humankind’s interest in the night sky goes back to our earliest history, when our stone-age forebears looked up in wonder at the starry mystery above them. Volunteers at LTO bring that ancient fascination to life today, giving members of their community an unforgettable experience of the night sky.
On two or three nights a month, a Star Night volunteer gets to present whatever astronomical information they are comfortable with in a way that is appropriate for the audience.
Presentations are informal and of whatever length you like. They frequently include a “Question and Answer” portion, and if you don’t know an answer, it’s fine! No one expects you to have a Ph.D. in astronomy.
After the presentation the real fun begins. You’ll give your guests a guided tour of the night sky. There are many resources on the web to help you create a list of likely candidates.
You’ll be as enriched by the experience as the LTO visitors you work with.
