Galaxies Galore!

Some of the most picturesque images in astronomy display the glory of galaxies. Studies of galaxies have led to revelations about supermassive black holes and the mysterious presence of dark matter. We’ll discuss the huge variety of galaxies in the Universe, how they differ, and how our own Milky Way Galaxy fits into the menagerie.

The lecture will last roughly one hour, followed by night sky viewing at the observatory (weather permitting).
