Solar System 101 with Cosmologist Joaquin Vieira
Monday, July 17 • 7:00 – 8:30 PM
In anticipation of the solar eclipse on August 21, we’re exploring the skies. At this event, cosmologist Joaquin Vieira takes us on a tour of our solar system. We’ll hear about the planets, moons, and our sun, and learn some surprising facts about how our solar system works. After the program, we’ll step outside the Library where we’ll use telescopes to view the night sky.
This program will be of special interest to adults and young people age 10 and up.
University of Illinois Professor Vieira is an observational cosmologist and an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois in the departments of Astronomy and Physics.
