Orion Starblast Telescope - Training

Stargazing 101

Thursday, May 19, 2016

The Burlington Public Library has added an Orion StarBlast 4.5” telescope that you can check out with your library card. The telescope was donated by Island County Astronomical Society. Volunteer astronomer Bob Scott of the society will be giving an introductory program that will inspire you to discover more about the skies and finding stars and constellations on Thursday evening May 19th, 6:30 p.m. at the library. The program will cover some examples of things that you can see on our clear summer nights. It’s a great family activity and there are many books in our library to introduce you to basic astronomy. The telescope will be loaned out for one week at a time. We anticipate requests to be high throughout the spring and summer months. Those who attend the training will be the first on the list.
