Come and find out why Jackson should build a public observatory!
University of Wyoming Astronomer and Director of the Jelm Mountain Observatory, Dr. Chip Kobulnicky, will present a program entitled:
“Wyoming’s Skies: A Gateway to Life, the Universe, and Everything”.
In this pictorial presentation, Dr.Chip Kobulnicky will describe how backyard enthusiasts
can contribute to modern astronomy research while bringing the excitement of real science to any hometown or school. Arguably the oldest of the sciences, astronomy is humanity’s quest to understand what exists in the universe, how it works, and how the universe affects life here on Earth. Remarkably, astronomy is also the most accessible of the sciences, especially here in Wyoming.
This presentation is part of the monthly Jackson Hole Astronomy Club meeting. Coffee and light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public. No need to RSVP.
