The Spring night sky brings warmer weather and the constellation of Leo the lion roaring in the Southern sky. The Big Dipper is overhead in the North, pointing down to the Polaris on the end of the Little Dipper’s handle. Join us as we learn how to find the North Star, and explore the science and history behind objects in the Spring night sky.

Dr. Valerie Rapson earned her Ph.D. in Astrophysical Sciences and Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She is currently an Assistant Professor at SUNY Oneonta (formerly Chief Astronomer at Dudley Observatory).
