MAH | Stellarium Tutorial

April 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:45 am

Join Morehead educators for a tutorial of Stellarium, a free, open-source planetarium software that shows what you see when you look up into the sky. We’ll be using this tool for Morehead At Home: Skywatching sessions every Tuesday and Thursday. This tutorial will demonstrate the basics and provide some tips for using the software. You can also check out our blog in case you need to reference any information in the future, which will be made available on April 14.

For your reference, Stellarium is available for use in a web browser, to download on your desktop, or to use on your mobile device.

This tutorial is recommended for grades 6 and up.
