After a packed house for our sixth event, we can’t wait to take over the Beer Grotto again in less than two weeks!  Come join us for another awesome night of tasty brews and stellar science.  This event will feature two out of town speakers who will take us on a journey from the first stars to form in our universe to the myriad of ways that stars take on new life after death.  There will be food and drink specials, raffles prizes, and opportunities to chat one-on-one with some of your friendly neighborhood astronomers.

Our featured speakers will be Dr. Katie Auchettl, Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics at The Ohio State University, and Dr. Britton Smith, Postdoctoral Research at the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.

Come with questions and a powerful appetite for libations and knowledge!
