Life Story of a Star (WWW Tour)
Exploring the Milky Way (WWW Tour)
During this program students explore the stars, star clusters, and clouds of gas which make up our galaxy. They will also "journey" into space to see how the Milky Way would appear from a distance of a few million light years.

Take the interactive Web tour, Exploring the Milky Way as a sample of the evening observing programs at Lake Afton Public Observatory.
