In 2010, what great mysteries now confront astronomy? What do the next generation of observatories look like? Dr. Charles Alcock, Director of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, looks ahead in this new century
of astronomical discovery.
We also will celebrate the 80th anniversary of Observatory Nights. Enjoy special tours of the 15" Great Refractor, see historic images of the universe from 1930 to today, and join us and the
Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston to view the heavens - weather permitting. There will be free space posters given out and drawings for astronomy books, four Galilean Telescopes, CfA t-shirts, and the grand prize winner will win a special observatory viewing night for friends or family!
The program will be held at the Center for Astrophysics, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge. Please click here for additional location information and directions.
