By going outside by using a group, you’ll be able to rub elbows with friends who know the night sky, can help you understand how to spot the great constellations and the best way to train your eyes to get the really cool stuff going on over our heads virtually every night. Astronomy is basically a passion that really is shared equally by everyone from children, to college students to serious scholars in the field to even professional astronomers who will work at exploring creation full time. From any given night, you or your little one might be sitting next to an award winning professional astronomer who would happily insure the private lesson searching for with the cosmos for me the sheer fun of shared learning.
