100 years after Einstein predicted
them, astronomers finally detected gravitational waves! What exactly are these
ripples through space-time? Where do they come from? Why are they such an
important discovery? Come explore the realm of relativity and learn about the
latest gravitational wave discoveries.
Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole
family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers
from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons,
planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur
astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or
more telescopes will be provided for public use.
