First Friday: Astronomy 101
Presented by Longway Planetarium Manager Buddy Stark
Friday, May 1, 6:00 PM EST
Free virtual event

This talk will cover the basics that you need to know to enjoy finding constellations and celestial objects in the night sky. Find out how to begin to make sense of the stars when it all looks like a big jumbled mess overhead. We will briefly discuss the basics of what to look for in a telescope. We'll finish by looking into how our ideas of the size of the universe have changed over time with many historical discoveries, and how we estimate vast distances today.

Join us every first Friday of the month for talks on astronomy and local science topics. First Fridays at Longway Planetarium are funded in part by the Genesee County Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment Millage. Your tax dollars are at work. Learn more at
