16th Annual


Indiana Family Star Party
and Greatcon 2018

Beginners Workshop
As the name of the event suggests, we are encouraging people to bring the whole family. The $5/$15 single-day fee is designed to encourage this, and to encourage newcomers to the hobby. So there will be an "Intro to Astronomy" talk/class for beginners on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 (meet outside the north end of the Nature Center) to introduce you to some of the basics- what will be visible that night, and a tour of the observing field to demonstrate how to use the many types of telescopes that will be available that night.

This is a quick introduction to astronomy.  If you’d like to learn how to find some things in the night sky, please register in the Sky Trekker / Sky Trek Adult program.  All ages are welcome to learn and explore the night sky.
