Astronomy on Tap #6

October 7, 2019 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

Come join us for our next Astronomy on Tap event at Champion Brewing Company on October 7th at 6:30pm. We will have astronomy talks by professional astronomers as well as astronomy themed trivia and prizes throughout the night!

Our theme for the night is the search for life beyond our Solar System. This event is free and open to all ages!

Since the event takes place in October, wear your favorite Astronomy themed costume to get an extra prize! If we have enough people in costume we may even do a costume contest 🙂

After the AoT talks end, Champion will be showing an astronomy themed movie starting at 8:30pm.

Dr. Casey Lisse (Johns Hopkins APL): The prospects for life around nearby stars and 1I/Oumuamua, The First Large Body Detected Coming From Another Solar System
