The UTSA Department of Physics and Astronomy invites everyone to our monthly lecture and stargazing event "Friday Nights Celestial Lights" to be held January 20th beginning at 7:30 PM in the Flawn Science Building room 2.02.02 on the University of Texas at San Antonio Main Campus.
Department staff each month takes recent topic if interest in astronomy/space science and discuss it in an easy to understand format for the general public. It is then followed by a question and answer period. The lecture is aimed not to be too scientifically "heavy" and can be understood by a middle school student.
This month's lecture topic will be titled "Decoding the Eclipse". We will break down the historical significance of the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse across the US, reports from those who were on the center-line, and what scientific research was performed including a project conducted by UTSA astronomers!
Stargazing to follow immediately after the lecture (weather permitting) at the Curtis Vaughan Observatory.
