Join us in Pupin Hall at Columbia University on the evening of Friday, April 26 for our final Public Astronomy Night of the Spring 2024 semester!!

Columbia Astronomy's Ryan Golant will be telling us about "The Universe's Magnetic Mystery: Uncovering the Origins of Cosmic Magnetism":

"Magnetic fields are everywhere throughout our Universe, shaping the cosmos from its smallest scales to its largest. Yet, we still don't know when or how these magnetic fields came into being. In this mystery story as old as time itself, I'll take you on a tour of our magnetic Universe, searching for clues that may point us to the ultimate source of cosmic magnetism."

We will start the evening at 7:00pm with some astronomy trivia, followed by Ryan's talk. From 8:10pm - 9:10pm, we will be outside stargazing on College Walk (weather permitting).

The lecture will take place in Pupin Hall 301. Signs will be posted to direct you to the lecture hall, and general directions to Columbia and Pupin Hall can be found under the "Directions" tab. Outdoor observing/stargazing will take place on College Walk, the portion of 116th street crossing through Columbia's main campus; we will walk down to College Walk as a group following the lecture and Q&A. Telescopes and binoculars will be provided by Columbia Astronomy.

This event is free and open to all -- stay only as long as you want. If you plan to attend this event, please fill out the RSVP form at tinyurl.com/columbia-astro-april26.
