    Tonight’s topic: Gravitational Waves

    One hundred years after Einstein predicted them, astronomers finally detected gravitational waves! What exactly are these ripples through spacetime? Where do they come from? Why are they such an important discovery? Come explore the realm of relativity and learn about the latest gravitational wave discoveries.

    Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use.

    Come early to enjoy the museum galleries as well as the Dudley Observatory program. miSci will be open continuously from 9am through the end of the Night Sky Adventure.
