    Astro Talk Tonight! 8/28/15


    Aloha All,

    Apologies for the short notice.  We will be holding an astronomy public talk this Friday August 28th at 6:30 pm.  I will be giving a talk entitled, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, How Do We Know What You Are?”  The talk will be held at the Maui Institute for Astronomy.

    “How we know something is perhaps as important as what we know. We know that stars are distant objects similar to the sun. How do we know that? In this talk you will take a journey to the stars. We will pay particular attention to the way we get there.”

    For more information please email me or go to:

    Hope to see you there.

    Dr. J. D. Armstrong
