Comets and Cosmopolitans: Fantastic or Fizzle? ISON the Comet of the Century

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 @ 6:30 PM-7:30 PM

On Science Series

Featured Speaker: Rich Heuermann, NASA Missouri Space Grant Consortium, Washington University

This event is FULL as of Monday, November 11, 2013. We are accepting WAIT LIST registrants below.

Sit back, settle in and relax as you sip a cosmopolitan during this exhilarating talk on what could be the most spectacular comet of the century. Fresh from the Oort cloud, a zone of deep-frozen objects orbiting in the dark outlands of our solar system, Comet ISON (named after the International Scientific Optical Network), could provide a spectacular display in November and December’s night skies. That is, if this sun grazing comet survives its hairpin turn around the sun. Cosmopolitans served!
