Astronomy On Tap - The First Ever Galactic Supernova and Observing in Las Campanas

Wed, January 9, 2019

7:00 pm

Free

This event is all ages

Come start off 2019 on the right foot with a great night of drinks and astronomy! Make a new year's resolution to bring a friend who's been telling you they'll "come to the next one" a few too many times!

We'll learn how astronomers go about classifying stars and what it's like to take observations at a telescope in Chile. Our presenters will be Dana Koeppe, PhD student from MSU, and Huei Sears, MSU alumn and PhD student at Ohio University.

As always, this is a FREE event! We'll have trivia questions, raffle prizes, and a Q&A with local scientists. If you'll be showing up hungry, bring something along from one of your favorite Lansing restaurants.

Doors will open at 7pm and the event will start at 7:30pm. If you need elevator access, please ask for assistance from the staff inside Taps 25.

See you soon!
