Tour of the Summer Night Sky

On a balmy summer night, the starry sky is dominated by many bright stars and their constellations, including the household names like Vega and Altair, and the zodiac constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius. Summer is also the best season to see the Milky Way. Such a splendid sight is definitely not to be missed! The Hong Kong Space Museum is now inviting you to go stargazing through the internet, so that you can enjoy the magnificent summer night sky at home. In addition to guiding you through the stars, the speakers will share with you the knowledge of astronomy in real-time.
