Stargazing

Explore the night skies with local Al Larsson! The indoor presentation will highlight the Rey View, the history of Astronomy in Waterville Valley, where the stars have been, and where they are headed.

The Rey Center’s Astronomy programs stem from Hans Rey’s study of astronomy during WWI, when he began to redraw constellations to make them more intuitive and less difficult to remember!
Our monthly Dark Sky Stargazing is beginner friendly. After dark, once a month we meet to explore a variety of astronomical topics and have a look at what’s viewable from Waterville Valley.
Topics depend on the visiting NH Astronomical volunteer and current sky events and range from celestial targets, carbon stars, current NASA missions, Deep Sky Objects, observing techniques, observatory construction and use, Dark Matter, Historical Astronomy and much more!
In addition to our Monthly Dark Sky Stargazing, watch for our special programs on current astronomical events http://thereycenter.org/dark-sky-stargazing.html
