Description:

CIERA Astronomer Evenings are special programs that take place on the last Friday of every month at Northwestern's Dearborn Observatory.

Look through the historic telescope and meet and talk with astronomers from CIERA, Northwestern's Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics!

CIERA graduate student Eve Chase will host this month’s event. She will present her research related to black holes and gravitational waves. She invites guests to ask any and all of their pressing astronomy questions!

Eve studies gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime caused by merging black holes and neutron stars millions of light years away. She will present an overview of recent gravitational wave detections and discuss new understandings of the universe emanating from these discoveries.

The talks are free and open to all!
