History of Astronomy

Thursday, July 18, 6-8pm in the Kingsley Room

It seems that every month there’s a major discovery in astronomy. In April an image – not a simulation – of a black hole and its surrounding environment was released. There are rovers on Mars and the Moon, orbiters at Jupiter and Mars, spacecraft visiting asteroids and telescopes in space. This is really a golden age for astronomy. This talk covers the history of our understanding of the world and the sky from ancient times to today. No prior knowledge of astronomy is required – just curiosity.

Registration is required.  Please call 203-262-0626 ext 130 to register.
