Upcoming Astronomy Events

As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.

Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington - With Stars in His Eyes

March 3, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST


The accomplishments of the early astrophysicist Arthur Eddington (1882-1944) are extraordinarily numerous, and yet in Dr. Korista's estimation are hardly recognized for the magnitude of their impact. In this presentation, after a brief biographical overview Dr. Korista will concentrate primarily on his brilliant insights on the inner workings of stars, and then brush through several other important contributions to astrophysics.

About the Speaker:
Dr. Kirk Korista is a Professor of Astronomy at Western Michigan University. He received a bachelor’s degree in astronomy from the University of Illinois in 1985 and a PhD in astronomy from The Ohio State University in 1990. Kirk performed doctoral work at the Carnegie Observatories (1990 - 1992), Space Telescope Science Institute (1992 - 1994), and the University of Kentucky (1994 - 1997). Kirk's primary research interests are spectroscopic analysis of active galaxies and Quasars and the interpretation of these spectra through numerical (computer) simulations.
