Upcoming Astronomy Events

As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.

"Part One: How to Photograph the Eclipse" by Alan Dyer

November 17, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST


Alan reviews several ways to capture memorable and dramatic images and videos of the April 8, 2024 total eclipse of the Sun, from simple methods requiring a minimum of attention to more complex techniques requiring more work at the camera. The emphasis will be on techniques that yield great images while still allowing you time to actually see the eclipse!

About the Speaker:
Alan is co-author of the popular guidebook for amateur astronomers, "The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide," published by Firefly Books. He has also prepared a new ebook, "How to Photograph the Solar Eclipses." Information about both books is at his website, AmazingSky.com. He is a member of the international The World at Night photography group. Alan lives in southern Alberta, Canada, at latitude 51° N. Asteroid 78434 is named for him.

This program is part of the Kalamazoo Astronomical Society's Eclipse Series.
