2014-8-28: 2014 Star Guides ⬅︎
Not only is Starry Hill a place for kids to come to connect with our universe, it is also a place that, as much as possible, is run by kids. That's why we have the Star Guides program, now in its third year.

For the 2014 stargazing season, we had three great Star Guides -- Braden, Evan and John. These three Guides handled a great variety of tasks... they set up and maintained equipment, made presentations on telescope use, taught groups how to navigate the night sky, assisted guests as needed in finding targets and even led people in doing astrophotography. Wow!

What else is left? Perhaps in future years, Star Guides will even become planetarians (people who create and present planetarium shows) -- now that would be really cool!

Thanks 2014 Star Guides!
