star_talk_sept_2015Welcome back to a new school year! We will be continuing our monthly ASX’s Star Talk on September 24th at 8pm. Our speaker is Keith Vanderlinde, an Assistant Professor¬†at the Dunlap Institute and Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics¬†at the University of Toronto.

Prof. Keith Vanderlinde has spent the last decade building and using telescopes to study the Universe: its composition, history, and eventual fate. Aided by technologies that make cell phones possible, and which make video games a staple of modern culture, he and colleagues from across Canada are building a massive new radio telescope in Penticton, B.C., which will map a larger volume of space than ever attempted before.

After the talk, join us for a night of stargazing. Our targets: the Moon and M13, the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules.
