About this Event

Admission is free and visitors are always welcome but you must register if you are not a member as spaces are limited.

Spectroscopy helps us understand the interaction of electromagnetics with matter. The Electromagnetic spectrum is extensive with visible light forming only a small portion. In this talk I’ll illustrate how information from several portions of the electromagnetic spectrum can be combined to create multiwavelength astronomy.

Visitors are welcome at our meetings, but because of the popularity of our talks, visitors must register for a free ticket as visitor spaces are limited. Visitors can also leave after the main talk or are welcome to stay on for the rest of the meeting. Tickets will go live 1 month before the event.

Also at our meetings:

  • What’s in the night sky this month
  • Overview of astronomy and space news
  • Occasional member presentations
