Daytona Beach library hosts Stargazer Series

Explore the summer sky with Dr. Jason Aufdenberg from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at the Daytona Beach Regional Library, 105 E. Magnolia Ave. The program will begin in the library auditorium with basic instruction on how telescopes work, followed by a simulation of the Daytona Beach area sky using Starry Night software. After a Q-and-A session, the group will move outside, where participants can view celestial objects using the library’s SkyQuest telescope.

Dr. Aufdenberg is an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and faculty adviser for the university’s Amateur Astronomy Club.
