• Astronomy


  • Mankind has long gazed toward the heavens, searching to put meaning and order to the universe around him. Astronomy focuses on the study of heavenly bodies and their evolution – planets, star clusters, galaxies, black holes, moons and suns. The planetarium is used extensively and is supplemented by telescope viewing. Some evening field trips away from the bright lights of the Portland are required to observe the night sky.
