Every other Friday, the Astronomy Department at Columbia University
sponsors public outreach giving members of the public access to
astronomical information through timely lectures aimed at a public
audience given by members of the department. After the lecture, if the
weather is clear, the public can proceed to the roof of Pupin Hall and
observe the sky from the telescopes of Rutherford Observatory. A slide
show and discussion with an astronomer about various astronomical
images happens if the weather is cloudy.
Lecturer and title:
Sasha Hinkley, PhD candidate in Astronomy, "Imaging New Planets from Here on Earth".
