Starting at 7pm , half an hour before each monthly meeting, “What’s Up?” features a brief presentation of things to see in the sky that month. Usually the presenter will also speak a few words on a topic of interest to new astronomers, especially young ones.
Our first “What’s Up?” presentation will take place at 7pm on February 10, 2011. The topic will be ““Where’s the centre of the universe? What’s it expanding into? And where is the limit of our vision into space?” RASC President and SFU Professor Howard Trottier will demonstrate a do-it-yourself expanding universe and take questions from the audience. He’ll also tell you how to find the Orion nebula and the moons of Jupiter!
