Posted on in category Event

This is going to be pretty cool if you are into astronomy and cosmology, or if you just really like looking out at the night sky in Central Oregon and marveling at it’s beauty.

Astronomy lecturer Scott Fisher will reveal the wonders of the Universe during a lecture on “The Cosmic Perspective.” Using images and videos from observatories including the Hubble Space Telescope and the Pine Mountain Observatory, Scott will use an easy-to-grasp scale that relates us to the actual size of the Universe we inhabit. With that new perspective, he will lead a discussion of one of the most exciting recent discoveries in all of astronomy–the existence of Exoplanets, the 3,500 planets we have identified that are known to orbit stars other than the Sun.
