Telescope observing at Strawbridge Observatory (weather permitting), plus free astro books for costumes and a critical viewing of the Simpsons!
Strawbridge Observatory at night.
Join us for another fun public observing event at Strawbridge Observatory! Rain or shine, junior Lee Rosenthal will lead a humorous viewing session of a Simpsons clip that shows a black hole gobbling up Springfield. We'll figure out which spooky black hole consequences are good physics and which are bad physics. The young and young at heart will also enjoy playing with alien slime and making paper bag space helmets.
Weather permitting, we'll also open the telescopes to take a peek at the stars. Fingers crossed for good weather this time.
Anyone who comes in an astro related costume gets a free astronomy or physics textbook to take home as a prize!
This event is free and open to the public.
