What is "Astronomy a la Carte?"
Simple.     This course consists of 12 "stand alone" astronomy classes
designed for anyone!  You may enroll in any of all of these different
classes.       As they are not continuous, a student can pick and
choose the classes that interest them the most.       We have
stand-alone classes about the moon, the Sun, galaxies, space weather,
stars and even a class about the "Strange
Universe."
You are welcome to attend any or all classes.    You may register by
calling 207-780-4249 or by contacting Edward Gleason at

$12.00 per person($20.00 for a couple; $130 for one person to attend them all;   $225 for a couple to attend them all.)

the phenomena caused by the interaction of Earth and outer space.
We'll learn the causes of the aurora and how to observe them.    We'll
learn about the major meteor showers and how to observe meteor trails.
Students will be given meteor tracking charts.
