REINHOLD AND MARGARET KADER MEMORIAL ASTRONOMY LECTURE & BURRELL MEMORIAL OBSERVATORY OPEN HOUSE
Dr. Amy Sardone, The Ohio State University
Friday, October 20, 7:30 p.m.
Mainstage Theatre, Kleist Center for Art & Drama
Dr. Amy Sardone, NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at The Ohio State University, will present a lecture on the galaxies closest to our home galaxy the Milky Way. The Milky Way is not alone in the universe. Our galaxy and its neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy, are locked together by gravity. Caught along with them are a host of 30-50 smaller galaxies. Together, they make up the Local Group.
After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.
