First 'The Stars Tonight' will be shown using our Spitz projector. See how the night sky over Juneau would appear if it was clear. Then there will be a presentation by Sarah Graver about the expansion of the universe and how we know it's happening. Includes discussion on the Big Bang, Edwin Hubble, dark energy, and the oldest light in the universe. Sarah is a TMHS grad currently pursuing a bachelor's in astrophysics at Columbia University in New York. FREE presentation. Universe presentation aimed for adults, but anyone may attend.
