By the end of this class, learners will have a basic understanding of asterisms, constellations, planetary motion, and night sky navigation.  
I have a bachelor of science degree in astronomy & astrophysics from Penn State University with 3 years of experience as a planetarium presenter where I taught primarily high school groups in my live presentations. I am a scientific content partner with the Africa Space Institute where I create and present online classes for high school students in Africa. I have also been an astronomy tutor for high school students since 2019.
