Midcoast Senior College presents its FREE “Winter Wisdom” series sponsored by The Highlands. Each week presents a new topic and speaker.

Take those binoculars off the shelf, bundle up, go outside, look up, and be awestruck by our marvelous
universe. The crisp, cool nights of winter offer stargazers living in midcoast Maine, a plethora of wondrous sights. In this talk you will be introduced to stars, constellations, planets, asteroids, nebulae, star clusters,
and galaxies that don’t need a telescope to be observed. You will learn how to use the Big Dipper and the Great Winter Hexagon to navigate this magical tour of the heavens. Russ Pinizzotto teaches astronomy at Simmons University in Boston when he isn’t diligently working as Simmons’ provost. He has taught introductory astronomy at Merrimack College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, and Simmons College. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from Caltech, a Ph.D. in Materials Science from UCLA, and an M.S. in Astronomy from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.
