RASC National Society: The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy - Astronomy at Other Wavelengths (ONLINE)

The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Join us online to learn basic astronomy that you can do on your own from your backyard!

We'll give you the tools to learn astronomy on your own at home, along with some observing goals to try. All you need is your computer! A pair of binoculars will help, but are not necessary. Sessions are always on Tuesdays at 3:30pm ET, but frequency of sessions changes.

Astronomy at Other Wavelengths - Chris Vaughan
• What would our night sky look like if we could see gamma rays? Many of the world’s telescopes scan the sky using wavelengths of light humans can’t see, like radio waves, infrared, ultraviolet, and x-rays. Those alternate views of familiar objects reveal new physics and deepen our understanding of the universe. Join us to learn about some of the coolest space telescopes out there, including the new James Webb Space Telescope, and what they’re looking for!
