Star Tour of the Night Sky in Daytona Beach Friday evening

Dr. Jason Aufdenberg will lead a celestial tour of the December sky at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, at the Daytona Beach Regional Library at City Island, 105 E. Magnolia Ave., Daytona Beach.
The program will begin in the library’s auditorium with basic instruction on how a telescope works, followed by a simulation using Starry Night software of the Daytona Beach area sky and astronomy news from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. After a Q-and-A session, the program will move outside, where participants may view celestial objects using the library’s SkyQuest telescope.
Dr. Aufdenberg is an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Embry-Riddle and faculty adviser for the university’s Amateur Astronomy Club.
