Burrell Observatory Lecture Series

Your Friendly Neighborhood Galaxies

Featuring Dr. Amy Sardone, The Ohio State University

Dr. Amy Sardone, National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at The Ohio State University, will present a lecture on the galaxies closest to our home galaxy, the Milky Way.

The Milky Way is not alone in the Universe. Our Galaxy and its neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy, are locked together by gravity.

Caught along with them are a host of 30-50 smaller galaxies. Together, they make up the Local Group.

After the lecture, the Burrell Observatory will be open for viewing, weather permitting.

This lecture is also part of the Reinhold and Margaret Kader Memorial Lecture Series and theRitter Library “Our Place in Space: The Ongoing Adventures of Humanity Among the Stars” Lecture Series.

Event is free and open to the public.

Entrance tickets required — use link under "DETAILS" at right.
