General Meeting: How Big is Big, How Far is Far

Event date: Sunday, January 27th, 2013 at 11am

Boy with telescope looking at the starsEvery part of this planet is made of stars (yes even us) and Richard Wade is going to show us just what that means.

Richard’s presentation “How Big is Big, How Far is Far” is a lively participatory talk about sizes and distances of things in astronomy.  Using common objects, the audience helps build scale models of the earth, moon, sun, solar system and other stars to grasp the vastness of the universe in a much better way than just hearing large numbers.  This wonderfully entertaining and informative show is suitable for children and adults.
