Arizona Astronomy (broadcast Friday, September 19th, 2008)
With dark skies and world class telescopes, Arizona is close to heaven for amateur astronomers. In this segment, we'll help you get the best view of the night sky, with two of the regions top star gazers. So even if you can't pick the Big Dipper out of a crowd, grab a telescope, a pair of binoculars -- or even just your own two eyes -- and get ready for a skywatching how-to. We're broadcasting from Tucson, Arizona this weeek, as the guests of Arizona Public Media. Teachers, find more information about using Science Friday as a classroom resource in the Kids' Connection.
