2017-7-26: 2017 Star Guides Lineup ⬅︎
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 sixth year.

For the 2017 stargazing season, we have more Star Guides than ever. Pictured here from left to right, are Ryan Mueller (1 year), Vanessa Lindquist (2 years), Braden Henricksen (6 years), Brett Emery (3 years), Gwen Pederson (3 years) and Gavin Cole (1 year). Not pictured is John Williams (4 years).

These Star Guides handle a great variety of tasks... they set up and maintain equipment, make presentations on telescope use, teach groups how to navigate the night sky, assist guests in finding targets and even lead people in doing astrovideo and astrophotography. They have collectively given many hundreds of hours of their time. Wow!

Thanks 2017 Star Guides!
