Explore the heavens from some of the darkest skies in America from Capitol Reef National
Park and from within UVU’s Planetarium.
You will learn to find your way around the night sky and discover how the stars and
planets move. We will identify the prominent stars and constellations visible in the
spring and summer, and look at a number of planets, clusters, nebulae, and galaxies
through telescopes. During the daytime, explore the unique and beautiful geology of
Capitol Reef National Park.
Begin to understand the earth as a planet orbiting one of 100 billion stars in a typical
galaxy in the observable universe. This inspiring workshop includes two days and nights
at Capitol Reef National Park, and two evening sessions in UVU’s Planetarium, located
in the Pope Science building.
