Super Stellar Friday: Inside Einstein's Universe

Doors open at 6:30 PM. At 7:00 PM we'll begin our lecture, Inside Einstein's Universe, given by David McDonald, M.Ed. Learn about the gravity of the situation and how Albert Einstein changed the way we look at our universe.  We will explore his life, his discoveries, and the implications they have for the study of our galaxy and beyond.  David McDonald previously taught Astronomy courses for NHTI and Plymouth State University Graduate School. He previously served as  Director of Education at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.  He currently teaches STEM and Astronomy for Belmont High School and serves as a part-time educator at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. The life and work of Einstein is one of his favorite topics.

At 8:00 PM in the Planetarium, join us for a Tonight's Sky showing. Learn about the constellations, planets, and more visible in the night sky in addition to the spectacular super blue moon that happened on January 31.

Doors close at 9:30 PM.
