ARIZONA STAR TALES - NOTE: Until further notice, all events have been cancelled and no requests are being accepted at this time due to the pandemic
This month at the South Mountain Environmental Education Center was all about light and how we use it to learn about the universe. We all got to look through spectroscopes to show how they break star light down into its individual colors and what they tell us. We passed out light filters that demonstrated how they turned what appeared to be a mess of colors into individual objects! We also learned about Red Shift and how it tells us about the movement of objects. Another great evening ended with our guests understanding how light tells us temperature, composition, and the movement of the universe. Join us next month on Friday, 23 March when we will learn all about telescopes. See you there!
