Featuring: Thomas Targett, Asst. Professor of Physics & Astronomy, Sonoma State University.
Host: Friends of Mt. Tam
Much of what we think we know about space comes from film and television, but Hollywood’s job is more often to entertain than to educate. In this presentation, we will sort fact from fiction, taking a tour through the worlds of Star Trek, Star Wars, and much more.
Meeting Location: Parking is free, but limited at the Rock Spring parking lot. Please try to carpool. Directions here.. The amphitheater is a short walk from the parking lot. Dress warmly, and bring blankets, cushions and a flashlight, along with food and beverage of your choice. Astronomy programs are held monthly from April through October. More program information.
