THIS MONTH we will be joined by Diana Windemuth*, who will speak about her research hunting for planets «By the Light of Two Suns» – looking for real life Tatooines. We'll also hear from Lupita Tovar* about «Mapping New Worlds» – on how we will use future telescopes to map exoplanets.

Please note that this event will begin at *8pm*, since the sun will set late!

This month we are excited to again be hosted by Peddler Brewing Company in their large beer garden. Bring lawn chairs if you’d like to to make your own front-row seating! There will be a food truck at the event, but outside food is also welcome.

Each FREE Astronomy on Tap event features accessible, engaging science presentations on topics ranging from planets to black holes to the beginning of the Universe. Most events have games and prizes to test and reward your new-found knowledge! There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other scientists who inevitably stick around for the beer.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get updates on future events!
