Astronomy on Tap Seattle IV: June 24th at Bad Jimmy’s

Our fourth event in Seattle will be on June 24th from 7-9 pm at Ballard’s own Bad Jimmy’s.

THIS MONTH Astronomy on Tap becomes Cosmos on Tap! This will be our first installment in the Cosmos: A Personal Voyage screening series, where we will host a guided viewing of the original Cosmos series with Carl Sagan (1980) complete with plenty of beer. We will have a guest speaker introduce the episode, lead discussions and a Q&A, and give updates on discoveries that have been made since the series first aired. As always, we will have astro-trivia with delicious prizes, but this month the trivia will be decidedly Cosmos-centric.

Don’t miss our fourth event and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook  to get updates on future events!

Please RSVP on our eventbrite page.

Astronomy on Tap Chile #7: May 26th at The Shamrock

The theme for Santiago’s latest edition of AoT will be “Origins” – just how did all of these incredible things we see come into existence, anyhow? PhD student Luca Matra will tell us how stars are born, and ESO staff astronomer Dimitri Gadotti will explain how they become part of galaxies. Roger Wesson will then finish by talking about “The washing machine and the watchmaker”… Intriguing!

When: Tuesday 26th May, 20:30

Where: The Shamrock, Providencia
