This July, we have talks on Lyman-alpha blobs (yes, that's a real term), astronavigation, and the instrumentation at McDonald Observatory
. Dustin Davis
will talk about some of the largest structures in the universe which emit the Lyman-alpha line. Ilya Beskin
will show us how to navigate without Google Maps. Lastly, Gordon Wesley will finish the show by describing the intricate designs that engineers create for the instruments at McDonald Observatory
will be hosted by our Host Star, A$AP Rocky Planet (Raquel Martinez
)! In addition, #AoTATX46 will feature Astronomy News by Major Merger (Sinclaire Manning
) and Astrobit (Dr. Brian Mulligan
), trivia, and AoTATX merchandise. Finally, we will have telescopes on hand to look for exciting objects in the night sky (weather permitting)! Join us for a night full of astronomy fun over pints of beer!
