The Burrell Observatory is proud to host an open house program as part of the Reinhold and Margaret Kader Memorial Lecture Series. This lecture is also presented in conjunction with the Ritter Library “Exploring Space” exhibit.
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.
