Meet An Astronomer
October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This Saturday, come up to Mars Hill and meet Planetary Astronomer, Dr. Larry Wasserman! Dr. Wasserman was part of a team of astronomers that conducted the Deep Ecliptic Survey, a systematic search of the Kuiper belt, a large area beyond Neptune that is populated with tens of thousands of so-called Kuiper belt objects (KBOs). He uses the Lowell Discovery Telescope to refine the current orbits of as many of these KBOs as possible.
Take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy. This event takes place every Saturday at 7pm and is included with an all-day general admission ticket.
