Learn how to use a sky map to find objects in the night sky and find out the best way to use binoculars and telescopes to observe star clusters, nebulae, and double stars. Then hear about current NASA missions and ones countries like China, Russia, and Japan are sending into space.   Finally, use a solar telescope to view the Sun, and maybe see sunspot or two!
