Goleta Library Offers Free Telescope Viewing of Stars, Galaxies

The Goleta Library and the Santa Barbara Astronomical Unit welcome the community to a free slide show and telescope viewing featuring stars and galaxies at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14 at the Goleta branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System.

All ages are invited to learn about the stars and observe them through telescopes.

The Goleta Library is located at 500 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta.

Did you know that the sun is the nearest star to Earth, and that there are billions of stars like the sun in our Milky Way galaxy? Come learn more fascinating facts about stars in a short presentation, and then step outside to see stars and galaxies through telescopes.

No advance signup is necessary. For more information, call the Goleta Library at 805.964.7878.

Visit the Santa Barbara Public Library System online at SBPLibrary.org for information about locations, hours, programs and events. All library programs are free and open to the public.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
