The First Stars

The Webb Telescope’s Holy Grail

Saturday January 8th, 7:30 pm

The James Webb Telescope is moving into position a million miles from earth. A primary goal of the telescope is to look back in time to find the very first stars and galaxies that formed after the big bang. Astronomer Steve Ruhl will look at what makes these stars & galaxies special and how they affect the evolution of the universe and life.

If the sky is clear, we will have a virtual star party with the Ritchie (or other) telescope on the island.
