The sky on cold winter nights has some of the brightest stars and the best known constellations. Some of these stars are truly supergiants hundreds of times bigger than our Sun, while others are dwarfs the size of Earth. Along the winter Milky Way there are colorful clouds where new stars are being born. Come and enjoy a guided tour of this celestial wonderland and learn how to use star charts to aid you in finding constellations and more.
