“Winter Stargazing Tips & Tricks”: a Presentation by Dr. Alice Monet

Dec. 16, 2017, 6:30 p.m.

Alice Monet will discuss what to look for in the winter sky, and how to find it; whether to use a telescope, binoculars, or the unaided eye to see the various wonders the universe has to offer.

She'll explain how to use star charts and mobile apps to help identify the constellations, and how to stay warm and comfortable while exploring the cosmos outside in the winter.

Dr. Monet, during a 35-year career at the US Naval Observatory, performed research in geodetic astronomy, stellar astrometry, and planetary astronomy. She us a member and past president of the Board of Directors of The Friends of Arlington's David M. Brown Planetarium.
