Starting January 25 – March 1st, join astronomer Rich Lohman for Astronomy 101: What’s Up in the Winter Night Sky?   The highlight of the Winter Sky is, for most people, the Orion constellation. But do you know about the Orion Nebula, lying just below Orion’s belt? With binoculars and a telescope we’ll get a closer view of what is called a “star nursery”. What about the Pleiades? Can you easily locate this beautiful open star cluster high in the winter sky? These objects, plus the beautiful colored stars of the Winter Hexagon, will be the subject of this mid-winter class. The class is open to anyone, regardless of experience and/or knowledge in astronomy. During the 5 weeks of the class there will be at least one visit to Rich’s home observatory in Woodacre. The class is held Wednesday nights, January 25th – March 1st from  7 – 9 p.m. in the East Room. The fee is $60 for 6 class sessions; $15 for drop in. Please call or email to register or for more information at  or 415-488-1938.
