The Milky Way: Our Galaxy, Our Home

The University of St. Thomas is hosting a free  30 minute lecture on The Milky Way followed by a Q-and-A session. Afterward, visitors are welcome to tour the observatory and, if weather permits, observe the night sky.

Have you ever been out under the stars, far from city lights, and wondered what that large white feature was, streaking across the sky? Tonight we will travel far beyond the reaches of our own home solar system to discover wild and wonderful facts about our home galaxy, the Milky Way.
