Skywatching Using Your Eyes
So much observation of our daytime and nighttime skies can be done without a telescope. Astronomer and educator Michelle Nichols will give us an overview of celestial observations you can do with just your eyes, including Moon phases, eclipses, planets, stars, and much more in a session suited to an astronomy novice – just in time for the lunar eclipse on November 19!
Michelle Nichols is Director of Public Observing at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL, and has worked at the Adler since June 1995. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University. Ms. Nichols leads all of the Adler Planetarium’s telescope, observatory, and public sky observing initiatives and events.
