Celestial Navigation Basics — July 31 @ 1 PM

July 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, July 31, at 1 pm to learn about the tools that were used 200 years ago to navigate the seas. We’ll try our hands at navigating the main floor of the library using tools to measure the position of simulated celestial targets and determine our location on a map. We’ll then use a magnetic compass and the stars to help us find our way to another location. Tools and maps will be provided.
