Our next meeting will be held on Friday, February 24 at the Ponderosa fire station.
Join us at 6:30 for the FYI session which will help you get ready for the annual Messier Marathon and then at 7:30 we will have an exciting presentation by Dr. Andrew Long who will present Dark Matter Demystified.
Over the larger part of the last century, a growing body of observational evidence has revealed the presence of a mysterious something in our Universe that pulls on stars and gas and light. Scientists don’t understand this something, but we give it a name so we can argue about it, and we call it dark matter. In this talk Dr. Long will describe some of the astronomical observations that led to the discovery of dark matter, and discuss some of the open questions that researchers are working on today.
