A Tour of the Orion Nebula: How Stars are Born

A Public Lecture at the Stamford Observatory by Jason Kendall, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador

Free for members of the Museum, $3 for non-members.

The Orion Nebula has long been a favorite for amateurs and professional stargazers alike. And there's good reason. It's a birthplace of stars. We'll learn how stars are born, and the amazing things that have been seen using Hubble's clear eye on this beautiful and iconic nebula. After the lecture, join us up on the rooftop for a view of the heavens through a huge telescope!

This presentation is suitable for the general public, and kids over 12. We'll provide free posters and handouts from NASA.

Directions and a map: http://stamfordmuseum.org/visit.html

    This was an excellent presentation which displayed great images, although Mr. Kendall made a few minor numerical errors. But he gave us 3D blue-red anaglyph glasses, some free posters, showed us 3D views of Mars, and he personally gave me the digital image files from his presentation as a special favor!

    Hello. I will be driving to this event from White Plains. I am happy to give anyone a ride (I can fit up to 3 passengers) and if you are coming from the city, I can pick people up at the White Plains train station.

    I'm not really sure where that train station is, but if it's close I wouldn't mind giving you a lift from the train to the museum.
    Let me know.

    Hi I really would like to go to this lecture but I don't have a car. Could anyone give me a ride from NYC? I live on east 59st right by queens borough bridge, tram and Bloomingdales. I'll travel to wherever it is convenient for you and pay for gas and coffee! :) Or is there a way to get to the museum by train?
