Please note: Astronomy Safaris are held (weather permitting) at The Berry Patch, 22509 State Line Road, in Cleveland, Missouri. Each safari consists of an inspiring slide seminar, followed by a tour of the heavens using tracking telescopes and binoculars.

 

The site of CSAMA Astronomy Safaris is not far from Cleveland Mo., and Louisburg, Kansas. Clear skies with little if any light pollution is the advantage of this rural setting. Click here for a map.

 

The Louisburg, Kansas, Powell Observatory is near by. Their web site offers a handy tool for amateur astronomers, an on-line observer's clock display, which shows the best times each night for viewing at the Powell Observatory, i.e., the best times for Star Gazing at the Berry Patch. To check the clock yourself, just click on:

At each CSA Creation Astronomy Safari, a short instructional session is usually conducted indoors before going out under the clear night sky.

 

This chart, showing the heavenly bodies of our solar system, is typical of the information available during the preliminary indoor session.

 

As the best viewing conditions are generally on moon-less nights, the moon is not illustrated here.

 

Telescopes and binoculars are provided for budding astronomers, or you can bring your own. Our resident astronomer guides the safari participants as they scan the heavens.

 

Each Astronomy Safari concentrates on a different aspect of the heavens that is in view at that time, i.e., planets, meteor showers, or constellations.

 

This chart is an illustration typical of the ones used at CSAMA Astronomy Safaris. This one shows the shape and inter-relationships of the stars and galaxies in the constellation ORION, one of the constellations mentioned in scripture.

 

 

Each year, just like clockwork, the Perseid meteor shower provides incredible insight into the masterful design of the solar system. Astronomers are able to calculate not only when the meteor display will appear, but also tell us where and in what constellation to look for it.

 

The Astronomer/instructor usually reminds astronomer wanabees of the passage in Genesis, chapter 1, which says:We know that biblical characters watched the sky. The Master Designer, our Creator, to establish seasons, and provide direction for travelers, designed the regular motions of sun, moon and stars.

Perseid Meteor Shower

 

" 14Then God said: "Let there be lights in the dome of the sky, to separate day from night. Let them mark the fixed times, the days and the years, 15and serve as luminaries in the dome of the sky, to shed light upon the earth." And so it happened: 16God made the two great lights, the greater one to govern the day, and the lesser one to govern the night; and he made the stars.17God set them in the dome of the sky, to shed light upon the earth, 18to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw how good it was. 19Evening came, and morning followed—the fourth day. "

Genises 1:14-19
