Exploring the Solar System

A Public Lecture by Jason Kendall
Sunday, March 15, 2015, 7:30 PM
Wayne YMCA, 1 Pike Drive, Wayne, NJ, 07470

Join William Paterson University's Astronomy Liaison Jason Kendall as he talks about the latest news in our solar neighborhood. From Rosetta's Philae landing on a comet, to Curiosity on Mars, to Dawn arriving at Ceres to New Horizon's upcoming encounter with Pluto, our exploration of the Solar System is at its zenith! Come learn about what's new about practically every planet, including some really far away orbiting other stars. After this whirlwind tour, we'll go outside and look up in the sky with telescopes to see Jupiter high in the sky, as well as other celestial wonders. The talk and event is suitable for ages 10 and up.
