THIS MONTH will feature our next installment of #CosmosOnTap, when we air an episode of the original “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” series with Professor Carl Sagan. Episode 6 “Traveller’s Tales” is all about seeing Jupiter and Saturn through the eyes of the Galileo, Huygens, and the Voyager missions. We will have trivia based on the episode, and short talks by local astronomers with updates tailored for the episode to fill you in on the new discoveries since the episode first aired in 1980.
This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large, outdoor beer garden. Arrive early to get good seats, or bring your own 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.
