Defending Earth from Asteroid Impacts

May 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm EDT


We welcome you all to our next public night, on Saturday, May 11th, from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Prof. Peter Brown, a world expert on asteroids, will be talking about how we can defend our Planet Earth from asteroid impacts. 


🔭 As always, if we have clear skies,  we will keep our telescopes ready for night sky observing. Engage with expert astronomers, ask burning questions, and gaze at the night sky through both our vintage and more modern telescopes. It’s a perfect opportunity to learn, explore, and be amazed.

🌟 This event is completely FREE and open to all. No registration is needed! Drop by whenever you like – whether you’re planning a unique night out, a memorable date, or a fun family outing.
