ACES invites you to Hallam Lake to look up and learn about the night sky! Each evening starts with a 15-minute lesson covering basic astronomy concepts, such as life-cycle of a star, reasons for meteor showers, what planets might be visible, or how phases of the moon work. After the mini-lecture, we will gather outside for the star-gazing portion of the evening. Aspen High School Astronomy Club member Ricky Woycik will be on-hand to guide you through the phenomena of the mountain night sky.
ACES Astronomy Nights are monthly gatherings on Monday evenings throughout the year with the goal of appreciating and better understanding the spectacle of the night sky. Join us for one evening or all of them - you will see and learn something different each time.
Space Time, Gravity and Black Holes
Are you ready to absorb some mind-bending things that happen in our Universe? If gravity has ability to change, does that affect and control time? What do black holes have to do with it and why are they confusing scientists everywhere? If it’s cloudy, we’ll have a fun time discussing what happens in the movie ‘Interstellar.” But if it’s clear, we’ll enjoy lots of shooting stars radiating from Lyra!
“Aspen’s night sky is very special and Hallam Lake offers an incredible spot to look at the beautiful stars and space that surrounds us.” -Ricky Wojcik
Please RSVP - each evening is limited to 50 people.
