Family Discovery Series: Astronomy 101 - Sizing Up the Universe
Sizing Up the Universe
Ages 9 and up are welcomed to join Winston Pendleton, PhD, for an astronomy lecture featuring space imagery, and information on recent discoveries and current research. The lecture will include a discussion of how we measure distances in the Universe. Terms like light-years, parallax, parsecs, and Cepheid variables will be covered in simple terms. Weather permitting, there will be star gazing after the lecture.
April 19 - 7:00 PM
