Hubble’s Universe Presentation for Astronomy Day

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Hubble's Universe Presentation
Hubble’s Universe Presentation

Today is Astronomy Day, an annual celebration of all things astronomy. The very first Astronomy Day event was in 1973 and hosted by the Astronomical Association of Northern California. These simple beginnings brought forth a nation-wide celebration of astronomy. The central coordinating body for today’s Astronomy Day events is the Astronomical League.

Tonight I will be speaking at Harper College in Palatine IL as a part of the Astronomy Day activities hosted by the Northwest Suburban Astronomers and the Harper College Department of Physical Sciences. The title of my presentation is Hubble’s Universe. Over the course of my presentation I talk about the Hubble Space Telescope, how its astronomical images are created, something of the science of cosmology and Hubble’s role, and provide images of planets, nebula, and galaxies. I will be presenting in room Z121 at 7:00pm.

For information about my presentation, see Hubble’s Universe lecture page.
