Evening of Astronomy: What is a Black Hole, Anyway?

Caryl D. Philips Space Theater

Friday, April 19, 2019, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Black holes are fascinating objects for both their extreme properties and their extreme weirdness! Even though physicists don't have the complete explanation, there are many things that we've discovered are true of black holes since they were predicted a century ago. There are also may popular misconceptions to clear up, and may physics questions still unanswered. Swing by for a layman-friendly discussion of these bizarre objects.

Admission to this after-hours educational program is free to the public. Live observing will continue throughout the evening in the Apollo Observatory (weather permitting).
