Stars, Galaxies & Black Holes

Monday, June 24 at 7 p.m.
Meeting Room A/B

Learn more about the recent detection of a Black Hole. An article on https://www.syfy.com/  recently announced “A Black Hole in a distant galaxy has been eating a star for nearly a decade.”

“In a distant galaxy, a staggering 1.8 billion light years from Earth, a black hole is eating a star.  This is a colossal, titanic event; the gravity from the black hole literally rips the star apart and consumes the entrails, generating soul-vaporizing amounts of energy in the process.”

Mike Buttitta, a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador and Endeavor Fellow, New Jersey and NJTEEA/ITEEA State Affiliate Rep, willl give another of his informative talks tonight. Hear the latest cosmological news about what is being discovered in the universe.

And, save the date: July 20, 2019 at 2 p.m. to celebrate the 50th year anniversary of the Moon Landing.
