Astronomy On Tap: Stars, Planets, Black Holes!
May 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
THIS MONTH we will be joined by UW Astronomy Professor and author Dr. Emily Levesque, who will tell us exactly how difficult it is to take a picture of a black hole. We’ll also hear from AoT SEA founder and organizer Dr. Brett Morris on his dissertation research into the links between planets and the stars that host them.
This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to to make your own front-row seating! There will be a food truck at the event, but outside food is also welcome.
Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.
