The Search for Planet NinePresented by: Dr. Dr. Wes Ryle
Astronomers are actively searching for another planet in the distant reaches of our Solar System. Hints of its existence come from gravitational anomalies in the orbits of recently discovered objects in the Kuiper Belt, outside the orbit of Neptune. Join us as we discuss this new search and look back at the history of finding (and demoting) planets in our Solar System.
Weather permitting, join us after the talk for a viewing of the Moon, stars, and more at The BB&T Observatory. Thomas More University faculty and students will be available to help the public view the night sky through a telescope.
This talk is intended for a general audience. All ages are welcome. The event is free and open to the public.
Cost: FREE and open to the public. No reservations required. All ages welcome.
