Black Rock Observatory participated in an exhibition at Natural History Museum’s Summer Nights in the Garden, where we were invited back for a second year after an overwhelming response in 2015. This free public event provided an opportunity to view the moon as well as Jupiter and various star clusters through both our 14” and custom 20” Dobsonian telescopes. Attendees were also able to hold and learn about our three unique meteorite samples.
This event is the third for the Observatory at the NHM, following a demonstration in May at a lecture by theoretical physicist Sean Carroll from Caltech. Following a mini lecture on his book The Big Picture, attendees were invited to the garden for a meteorite Q&A and stargazing.
BRO looks forward to future events with the Natural History Museum. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for updates!
