Thanks to all of those who came out to learn about stars at last night's UMBC Observatory Open House. In total, we had about 50 attendees!
We started the evening with Astronomy Club President, Katy-Ann Carr leading astronomy-themed Jeopardy.
During the talk, we focused on stellar evolution and how stellar lifecycles tie into the abundance of the chemical elements in the universe. We even talked about how high mass stars can end their lives as black holes.
After the talk, Jackson Ames and Jay Sharp presented on astrophotography and what the sky looks like tonight, respectively. Roy and Katy also brought attendees into the observatory for a tour of the facility.
Everything wrapped up just before 10pm.
