After a long time, and many breaks, hiatuses, and Astronomy’s at Home, for the first time in two years we are back in person this month! We’re excited to see all of you in person again! We are requiring vaccinations (including boosters) so make sure you remember to bring your vaccine cards. First, Dr. Pedro Bernardinelli will regale us with tales of how the largest comet was accidentally discovered. Then, Andy Tzanidakis will talk about how the new Vera Rubin Observatory will be an incredible new way to look at the ever-changing skies!
This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring 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.
