Thursday February 15th 7pm at CSU-P, the Math and
Physics Building room 103
The Celestial Yardstick

How on Earth… or for that matter any other planet… can we
possibly know the distance to objects in space?  Sure, we’ve
been to the moon, we have rovers on Mars, we even have a
few satellites that have now entered interstellar space, and we
know how far away they are.  But these are meager distances
when you consider our galaxy, even more so the Universe.  
Do we have an unbelievably long tape measure? Do we have
the inside track with galaxy-hopping aliens?  It boils down to
good old-fashioned human ingenuity. But how?

Thursday February 15th Professor Emeritus Howard “Cork”
Hayden will take us on a journey far outside our solar system,
beyond our Milky Way Galaxy, past our local group, to the
edge of the inconceivable, to find a number and discover how
we know this.

Accompany the Southern Colorado Astronomical Society as
we trade miles for light years at CSU-P, the Mathematics and
Physics Building room 103, beginning at 7pm.  We’ll have hot
liquid refreshments such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apple
cider available free of charge.  We’ll also have fellow star
gazers, space enthusiasts and amateur astronomers enjoying
the knowledge of the night sky.   There is no charge to attend,
and you need not be a member of the society to participate in
this wonderful opportunity to learn about our vast universe.  
Discover Your Inner Astronomer!
