A Journey through the Cosmos!

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, join us for this exciting program about the universe from the very small to the very large!

Astronomer Kevin Manning will take us on a virtual journey through the cosmos, followed by a trip outside to view celestial objects through a powerful hand-crafted telescope. This presentation is geared toward adults, but younger astronomy lovers are welcome.

There will be a raffle for a copy of the National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Night Sky, plus the ticket enters you into a raffle for the Summer Reading grand prize of an Orion telescope!

Bio: Kevin is a gifted astronomer, having worked as a consultant with NASA, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory launched on the space shuttle with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and other ground-based observatories. Kevin won national and international awards in his field, was both a Wright Fellow and an Einstein Fellow, and did some work with Brookhaven National Laboratory. Besides the numerous workshops he's presented over the years at libraries, observatories, and science centers, some noteworthy ones include those made at Tufts University, State University of New York at Stony Brook, the National Science Teachers Association's National Convention, American Association for the Advancement of Science Breakfast with Scientists, and the National Parks Service.
