Planetarium

On the Dome!

Greetings!

If you're on this page, you're working through one of our astronomy lessons.  These informal lessons offer you a way to learn more about astronomy in an friendly, casual environment.

"So, good morning!"

YOU:  Good morning, Lord Gleason

The current lesson involves how to read a lunar eclipse chart.

We would like to extend credit to Xavier M Jubier, who is responsible for this graphic and who would have been more than happy to allow us to use it had we been bothersome enough to ask his permission.

We're pretending that you're in the Southworth Planetarium's 19th century state of the art facility and are admiring the above image projected onto the dome.
