<p>Need some inspiration to get outside and look at the stars? The Montgomery College Observatory can help! Astronomy professor Carrie Fitzgerald would love for you to join her for a virtual exploration of the summer night sky.</p>
<p>There are two webinars in the series left! Each one will focus on a particular constellation, including its history, mythology, and how to find it in the night sky. In the process you'll learn some astronomy fundamentals that will enrich your stargazing experience.</p>
<p>The schedule is below. <strong>All presentations will begin at 7:30 PM EDT</strong>.</p>
<li>Fri 26-Jun-2020 : Hercules- Strongman with a Star Cluster (Register <a href="" target="_blank" title="Hercules">HERE</a>)</li>
<li>Fri 17-Jul-2020 : Cygnus- Swan in a Triangle(Register <a href="" target="_blank" title="Cygnus">HERE</a>)</li>
<p><strong>About the presentations:</strong></p>
<li>Presentations are given live via Zoom Webinar. When you register you will be given a link for the event. You'll also receive a reminder email an hour before the presentation begins.</li>
<li>You won't be on camera! Don't worry about what you look like :). This is a Webinar, so you will automatically enter with your mic muted and no video. That doesn't mean you can't participate, though! Chat will be open, as will the Q&amp;A.</li>
<li>I will talk for 20 to 30 minutes, and then will take questions. The entire event will last approximately 40 minutes.</li>
