Astronomy Lecture: Where did we come from? A tale of galaxies far, far, away
Please join the Mt. Diablo Astronomical Society for our October 23 general meeting featuring Professor Marusa Bradac, UC Davis, who will discuss the creation of a model for the history of the Universe. Professor Bradac will show how astronomers use telescopes as time machines to study the Universe in its infancy and pursue our quest to understand the formation of the first galaxies, and answer questions about the origin of the world we live in. The meeting starts at 7:15 p.m. with a short “What’s Up” presented by MDAS Secretary Moon, who will discuss mysteries of the October night sky. Our monthly meetings are held in the Lindsay Wildlife Museum Community Room, 1931 First Avenue, Walnut Creek, CA 94597 Check our web site or email [masked]
