Proxima B and other Earths - Planetarium Show

Friday, September 21, 2018 at 8:00pm

Smith Hall, Room 521 Towson University, 8000 York Rd, Towson, MD 21252, USA

Presenter:   Dr. Alex Storrs, Towson University.  

Abstract:   We now know about more planets outside our solar system, than in it. Surveys of nearby stars extrapolate to the exciting result that there are probably about as many Earth sized planets in our Milky Way galaxy, as there are stars. We will look at a few of the nearer ones, including one around the nearest star to the Sun, Proxima Centauri.

Telescope viewing after the show, weather permiting.
