Astronomy Night Out

CIERA’s Astronomy Night Out series brings campus and the Chicagoland community together to hear a CIERA astronomer speak on a fascinating, timely topic. After the lecture, meet Northwestern astronomers, engage in astronomy activities, and look through telescopes (weather permitting)! These lectures are aimed at audiences of all ages interested in astronomy. They are free and open to all.

Can’t make it in person? Watch the livestream for our May 17, 2024 Astronomy Night Out!
