MADISON, CT — Celestial navigation is the science of finding your way by the sun, moon, stars, and planets. Not unlike other coastal towns, Madison sailors too have used the ancient art to chart their course.

Now you can learn how to follow the stars at E.C. Scranton Memorial Library's Celestial Navigation & Stargazing 101 program on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the Johnson Community Room.

Brian Kohler of Mystic Seaport’s Treworgy Planetarium will teach program participants how to navigate on the open seas using the vintage tools and instruments that formed the basis for our modern GPS system," it's explained by Scranton Library's staff.

Afterward, he will take the audience outside for a stargazing session with one of the Planetarium’s powerful telescopes to experience the highlights of the autumn sky.
