Monthly Meeting February – Planet Nine from Outer Space

February 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dr. Michael Brown (Caltech)
Nov. 11, 2020
Dr. Brown discusses the history of planetary discovery (and demotion), why we think a new, larger Planet 9 is on the verge of being found, and the techniques that we are using to try to find this very faint body lurking in the far reaches of our planetary system.

This is a rebroadcast of a recent Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture.

The meeting will be followed by supper.
