KETCHUM — The Sawtooth Botanical Garden will present a four-part astronomy series, “Astronomy in the Garden.” Each program will start at 7 p.m. at the garden, 11 Gimlet Road, four miles south of Ketchum. Topics include:
- January 23 — Finding your way with telescopes, binoculars and spotting scopes
- May 22 — Shoot the night sky with your camera or cell phone
- August 12 — Family night with the Persieds at Croy Canyon
- November 13 — Winter constellations: the horse, the maiden and the queen
Each evening, Tim Frazier — president of the Magic Valley Astronomical Society — will give an hour-long lecture on the designated topic; then the group will move outdoors for an hour of telescope-viewing and constellation lore — weather permitting.
Preregistration is required. Individual classes are: SBG members $10, nonmembers $12 and children younger than 16 free. The entire four-part series is SBG members $35, nonmembers $43 and children younger than 16 free.
