SUU Community Education is offering a fall astronomy workshop in collaboration with Cedar Breaks National Monument.

The Master Astronomer Program is a 40-hour workshop that will allow community members to learn about and develop a greater appreciation for southern Utah’s night skies.

Classes will take place on SUU’s campus, as well as in Kolob Canyon, Cedar Breaks National Monument and at the Ashcroft Observatory. The workshop will provide hands-on experiences like learning how to operate a telescope as well as gaining knowledge of the solar system, celestial motions and dark sky preservation.
