Discoveries From Deep Space

The James Webb Space Telescope is the latest space-based observatory, launched in December of 2021 as a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope.  The Webb allows us to look further back in time than Hubble and to view objects in wavelengths of light that are not visible to the human eye.  So great is its observing power that it is making many new discoveries about the cosmos.  Rod Cortright, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, will discuss what makes the James Webb Telescope unique.  Rod is an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer.  He is a founding member and vice president of the Northern Michigan Astronomy Club and manages the Sky Docent Volunteer program at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park.

Cancellations are non-refundable within 24 hours of this event.
