Observatory Open House

The Life and Death of Stars
Presented by:  Dr. Wes Ryle

Proxima Centauri

We have more in common with stars than you might think! Stars are born, live out their lives, and die, sometimes with grace and sometimes with destruction. Join us as we discuss the delicate balancing act of a star's life and what happens when that balance is broken.

Weather permitting, join us after the talk for a viewing of the Moon, Saturn, and more at The BB&T Observatory. Thomas More College faculty and students will be available to help the public view the night sky through a telescope. This talk is intended for a general audience. All ages are welcome.  The event is free and open to the public.

When and Where:
Saturday, October 15th
7:00PM - Introduction & Lecture - Steigerwald Hall, Saints Center
8:00PM - Night Sky Viewing - The BB&T Observatory (weather permitting)
