Night Sky Talks

Hey there, stargazers!

Interested to see Jupiter and Mars under a cluster of stars? Or perhaps the Milky Way Galaxy is more up your curiosity alley? We are too, and our friends Ed Anderson, Astronomer at NAU, and NASA Solar System Ambassador, Mary Lara, have created the Night Sky Chats at Yavapai Lodge!
