A Star Party at Your Desktop: Sky Tonight YouTube Videos
PUBLISHED

The Scobee Education Center at San Antonio College is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults alike by fostering a love for science, technology, and astronomy through hands on experiences and programs at the Challenger Learning Center and Scobee Planetarium. As a result of the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, our astronomers have turned to YouTube to post videos of our popular Sky Tonight presentations that we would be sharing during the 7:30pm Friday night planetarium shows.  Covering a variety of topics, Michelle Risse, takes you through the program using Stellarium and other resources on this 2D platform.  Follow our YouTube channel and keep up with th enew videos posted each week and you will also see some of the videos in support of our FutureReadySA.org digital badge activities as well.  :)
