Night Sky Courses

Learn how to navigate and appreciate all that the night sky has to offer!




Introduction to the night sky and astronomy

This two-session course prepares students for many things: how to further appreciate and understand what is in the night sky, navigation to objects in the night sky, and visual astronomy with telescopes. Once students complete the course and earn the badge, they will be ready to take trips out to a dedicated dark sky location like Goldendale Sky Village. A portion of both sessions includes hands-on practice.


The Introduction to the Night Sky and Astronomy course generally occurs twice per year, from Spring through Fall. The course is offered by the Seattle branch.
