On December 22, we’re celebrating the Winter Solstice – another year, another trip round the Sun, and dark nights great for astronomy. This left us asking… what happens in a year? What IS a year? So – let’s look at a year in the life… of other planets, of our galaxy, and more!
AND!!! Help us raise money for a NYC Science Classroom! We’re raffling off some fantastic prizes, and donating money through DonorsChoose.org. Prizes include:
- A pack from the Unemployed Philosophers Guild!
- Another pack from the Chop Shop store!
- Books and drinks from our friends at the Way Station!
- A bundle of astronomy and space books!
- A kid’s pack including space books, posters, and a placemat!
- A NASA/ESA swag bag!
- Mercury and Venus plush dolls!
- A Lego Women of NASA set (currently sold out!)
- The beer prize – a little Stella, a little Star Trek
- and of course treasures from our favorite celebrity astrophysicist, Neil Tyson!
- (we might even add more!)
$3/1 ticket, $10/4 tickets, $20/10 tickets! Buy tickets early through paypal to AstronomyOnTap@gmail.com (PLEASE include your name and contact info), or come on December 22nd.
You DON’T have to be present to win! But if you aren’t, you WILL have to pick up your prizes in Brooklyn.
We’ll be at the Way Station, starting at 7:30pm. Talks start at 8pm, prizes and raffle drawing at 10pm!
