Celebrate National Astronomy Day with Lowell Observatory at 6pm AZ/Pacific. Live talks from Lowell astronomers and educators will look at astronomy as both a profession and a hobby that inspires us all. Topics include getting started in astronomy while everyone is at home practicing social distancing and doing at-home astronomy activities for kids. We'll also look at the legacy of Robert Burnham, who authored the authoritative Burnham's Celestial Handbook for both beginning and advanced amateur astronomers. The live stream will wrap up with a preview of the coming week's celestial events, including a look at the dance of the planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
