Event Summary

At Royal Redeemer Church

Dean Regas, stronomer at the Cincinnati Observatory, gives an entertaining and informative talk on comets & meteors followed by stargazing

When something new appears in the night sky, everyone takes notice. Historically comets portended gloom and doom as a change to the status quo. Now, astronomers can’t wait for a chance to observe and study them when they wander close to Earth. And when a meteor hits the Earth like the one that exploded above Russia, you can’t help but look up.

Join Astronomer Dean Regas as he discusses where these sudden visitors come from and what we can do to protect ourselves from the next, “Big One.” He will also bring meteorite samples, actual space rocks for you to investigate. If it’s clear outside, join Cincinnati Observatory members for views through telescopes of the slim crescent Moon, stars, and more.

Presentation followed by Q&A, followed by stargazing (weather permitting). All ages welcome.

Free and open to the public.  Reservations recommended.

Location:

Royal Redeemer Church

Liberty Township, OH 45044
