Little Galaxy on the Celestial Prairie: Using the Lowell Discovery Telescope to Study Dwarf Galaxies
June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
While the Milky Way Galaxy contains several hundred billion stars, dwarf galaxies have only 1,000 to a few billion. To better understand these diminutive families of stars and how they form, scientists use some of the world’s most powerful instruments. Tonight, Dr. Deidre Hunter and Haylee Archer will join Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler to share how they’ve explored these tiny galaxies with the Lowell Discovery Telescope. This free program will be available to watch via a livestream feed on Lowell Observatory’s YouTube station.
