Astronomy on Tap Champaign-Urbana: May 19, 2022

May 19 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM CDT

*NEW TIME AND LOCATION!* Join us IN-PERSON at 8:00pm Thursday, 5/19 for this month’s Astronomy on Tap at Riggs Beer Company. University of Illinois professor Gil Holder will be talking about Planet 9. Could there be an undiscovered planet lurking the outer reaches of the Solar System? In addition to the talk, we will have telescopes set up for people to observe the night sky!

Gil Holder is an endowed chair in theoretical astrophysics at the University of Illinois who studies the beginnings of the universe when he is not out on the hockey rink.

Grab a drink, bring your friends and family, and let’s have some fun while we learn! We hope to see you there!
