Circle J offers stargazing for students, families
Astronomy Field Trips offered this fall include views of the moon, Milky Way and more
Circle J-Norris Ranch is the beautiful 620-acre field trip site in the Sierra foothills that is part of the SCICON program. The program offers all grade levels a wide variety of field study experiences that enrich and extend classroom learning. Programs conducted on the property are designed to expand the appreciation of the environmental and aesthetic values of the outdoors, and increase understanding of the relationship between humans and nature.
"We are excited to expand our offerings of the popular astronomy program," said Circle J-Norris Ranch lead teacher Nancy Bruce. "This fall, our viewing includes the summer triangle, the Milky Way, star clusters and the Andromeda Galaxy. On certain nights, the moon, its craters, highlands and mare, are also visible."
