Looking Up! Astronomy at Home

Signup for FOTO's Update Newsletter

Wondering about what you are looking at when you look up? Use these links to help you locate the stars that are visible from your own home or from another location; find out what is happening in the sky on any day – such as when Local Noon occurs. We have fun things for you to try – making your own edible and inedible comets and learning how to make your computer function as a telescope. Try it by clicking here….
