Telescope observing at Strawbridge Observatory (weather permitting), plus a brief talk on black holes and galaxy craft (rain or shine).
Strawbridge Observatory at night.
Join us for another fun public observing event at Strawbridge Observatory! Rain or shine, junior Lee Rosenthal will present a talk about black holes. Weather permitting, we'll then open the telescopes to take a peek at the multiple star system, Albireo, and the Moon.
The young and young at heart will also enjoy our black hole-related craft activity. Did you know that all galaxies have a black hole in their center? We'll take a look at atlases of real galaxies, and then do our own artist's rendition of galaxies and the supermassive black holes at their centers.
This event is free and open to the public.
