Friends of San Pedro Valley Park Lecture Series: Exploring the Night Sky

10/26/2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What’s up in the evening sky that can be seen with the unaided eye or with just a pair of binoculars? Amateur astronomer Bing Quock will give us a tour of the heavens, including seasonal constellations, notable deep-sky objects, & a sneak peek at a few upcoming events, including meteor showers, interesting configurations of the Moon & planets, and a rare transit of Mercury across the Sun that won’t be seen again until 2032. Interested in purchasing a telescope for yourself or as a gift? What are some recommendations and affordable resources? We’ll explore the heavenly hobby of stargazing; be there on SaturdayOct 26at 4pm.

Bing Quock is a long-time amateur astronomer, having been bitten by the astro-bug while growing up during the height of the Space Race. Drawn away (but not completely) from dinosaurs to the science of the stars by the writings of Patrick Moore Carl Sagan, he parlayed his childhood interest into a career, having since taught astronomy courses at both the informal & college levels. He is currently Assistant Director of Morrison Planetarium at the Cal Academy of Sciences. He’s a frequent interviewee on local media, explaining astronomical events, & writes daily sky watching tips that appear in over 30 newspapers across the nation.
