Photographic image of thousands of stars and other celestial bodies

"Photographing the Universe"

Join us for an evening of stargazing and photography. All are invited to view the cosmos through telescopes and learn about how the photoelectric effect makes it possible to take color photographs of the universe. May the fourth be with you!

This program is inspired by Dimensionism: Modern Art in the Age of Einstein and offered with support from Arts at Amherst, the Amherst College Science Center and the Amherst College Department of Astronomy.

This event is free and open to all!
