Ketchum — Spring Constellations and the Night Sky

Join us for a fun evening during Dark Sky Awareness Week for an educational tour of the night sky and spring constellations.

Amateur astronomer and local resident Tim Frazier will give an introduction to the spring sky, featuring several prominent constellations. You will learn the lore behind these celestial patterns and have access to telescopes for viewing deep sky objects. A number of star clusters, nebulae and galaxies are possible targets for the evening’s program.

You can also learn about the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve, the first such reserve in the nation. Hear more about how this reserve is preserving and enhancing our superior nighttime ambiance and how it is benefiting our health, environment and economy.
