March 2 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM PST
Join us at 7:30PM PST, Saturday, March 2nd for a very special Astronomy on Tap in Death Valley as part of the Death Valley Dark Sky Festival! We’ll hear from Caltech researcher Dr. Joanna Piotrowska-Karpov: “How Supermassive Black Holes Shape Their Host Galaxies,” as well as Caltech PhD candidate Sam Rose: “(Star)Dust to Dust: The Formation, Observation, and Impact of Space Dust.” In addition, we will have telescopes on-hand for guided stargazing, professional astronomers to answer your science questions, and astronomically-themed pub trivia with prizes!
These events are being hosted by the crew from Astronomy on Tap, Los Angeles, as part of the Death Valley Dark Sky Festival, a weekend of astronomy and space science out in one of the darkest skies in the United States.
The event is free and open to all ages. No reservations are necessary, just show up and stay only as long as you want. To view our past events, see our location page. For more information about our future events and affiliated Stargazing Lecture Series at Caltech, see our website.
