Spend some time with astronomer from the past Caroline Hershel! Caroline was the first woman to discover a celestial object, and the first woman to earn a salary as a scientist. Best known for her work as a duo with her brother William, she developed techniques to track and catalogue the night sky using emerging telescope technology and discovered numerous comets, nebulae, and a brand new planet!
Gather your family around the computer to experience an optical demonstration, learn about light pollution, and even ask Caroline Herschel your own questions.
