We will learn about the stars and constellations that are seen in the autumn sky, and point out the planets, Jupiter and Saturn, that appear in the evening sky, as well as our own Moon. We will use the telescope to look at the moons of Jupiter, the ring of Saturn, and craters on the Moon. In the talk, the current state of our knowledge of these objects will be described.
