Join us at Camp Hancock as we search the sky for galaxies, nebulae, and planets through a telescope. At night, we’ll observe sparkling star clusters, distant galaxies and the rings of Saturn. During the day, we’ll design moon landers, discuss the possibility of extra-terrestrial life, and go in search of martian landscapes. Viewing opportunities are weather-dependent, but in central Oregon clear skies are the norm.
