East Campus hosts astronomy program


Pima Community College’s East Campus invites guests to explore the galaxy in their Astronomy for All series.

Their debut event will take place Feb. 25 at the East Campus Community Room and observatory.

Megan Reiter, a graduate of the University of Arizona’s Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory, will present a lecture on the early development of stars called, “Growing Pains: The Tumultuous Youth of Stars.”

The lecture begins at 6 p.m. and will be followed by stargazing from 7-8:30 p.m.

The all ages, open to the public event is free.

Upcoming events are planned for the series falling under the theme “bringing the universe to your back yard.”

On March 26, UA postdoctoral Cameron Hummels will give a lecture before stargazing.

Another postdoctoral fellow of the Department of Astronomy, Karin Sandstrom, will lecture on April 29.

Details of both presentations will be available at a later date.
