In honor of Northwestern’s One Book selection, Hidden Figures, join us for a special CIERA Astronomer Evening focused on NASA’s space program.

CIERA Astronomer Evenings are monthly programs that take place at Northwestern’s Dearborn Observatory (part of the weekly Dearborn Observatory public viewing sessions).

Meet astronomers from CIERA, Northwestern’s astronomy center. Different experts host each month and are available to answer your astronomy questions. Stop by any time during the two-hour public observing window. Each month is different! Children are welcome. The talks are free and open to all. No reservation is needed.

Unfortunately the historic Dearborn Observatory is not wheelchair-accessible. Several staircases must be climbed in order to reach the conference room and the telescope.
