Each Sunday night you can enjoy episodes of Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" with your fellow freethinkers. The show airs from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm, but feel free to come early to mingle and chat, and bring along your favorite potluck snacks and beverages to share. Tonight Dave breaks in his new 70" HDTV with surround sound.

Tonight's Episode: "A Sky Full of Ghosts" - Neil deGrasse Tyson sets off on the Ship of the Imagination to explore how light, time and gravity alter our perception of the universe. Travel back in time to 1809, when astronomer William Herschel observes how light plays tricks with time and gravity. Later, Tyson embarks on an exhilarating journey to the event horizon of a black hole.

About the show: "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. Uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with visual, emotional, and spiritual elements, it will be a transcendent experience – a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale we know.

    Ever since a friend introduced me to the legend that is Carl Sagan and his beautiful creation that is Cosmos, I have been addicted to his show. When Neil talks about being picked up at the bus stop by Carl I felt like Neil in a much less personal way when I watched the original show. Now I have seen 3 episode so far of the new Cosmos and Neil goes above and beyond in delivering a hearty scientific lecture at a casual pace. All the while being able to tribute his mentor. A truly amazing show.
