Astronomy for Everyone: Size & Scale of the Universe

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Manhattan Public Library

Event Details

An exciting family program for ages 8 to 100+.  Kevin Manning, an astronomer with Look Up to the Stars, will lead a 90 minute presentation looking at matter from subatomic particles to superclusters of galaxies, and the entire universe. It's a virtual journey throughout the cosmos describing celestial objects and how they were formed as well as their relative sizes compared with each other.  Truly exciting images and video segments serve to bring the point home.  Weather permitting, the audience is invited to go outdoors to view celestial objects, such as the ice crystal rings of Saturn and craters on the Moon, through a powerful hand-crafted telescope.
