AoT Santa Cruz #10 – Planets Near and Far – Thursday, December 6th, 2018 @ New Bohemia Brewing Co.

Mark your calendars! 

Astronomy on Tap returns on Thursday, December 6th at 6:30 pm at New Bohemia Brewing Co, in Santa Cruz, CA.

Planets Near and Far

At this month’s Astronomy on Tap we’ll be spanning the distance scale of planets! Come to hear UCSC PhD candidate Rachel Maxwell speak about our nearest space-neighbor, the Moon! She’ll tell us why it’s important to understand magnetic fields around planets and what we can learn from studying the Moon’s lack of global magnetic field. We’ll then move away from our nearest neighbors and hear from UCSC PhD candidate Zack Briesemeister who develops technology to directly image planets outside our Solar System. 

Our events are for everyone, so please bring your curiosity, questions, and love for space. Happy hour extends for the duration of the event, in addition to food trucks, trivia, and swag! Astronomy on Tap is free of charge and open to all ages
