Einstein’s Gravity Playlist

Fridays November 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29 at 7:00 pm What are gravitational waves? How are these ripples in space-time created? Albert Einstein predicted there existence in 1916, and a century later, scientists detected these waves using incredibly precise laser technology here on Earth. See the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and Lucia, a […]

Transit of Mercury at Emera Astronomy Center

Observe the tiny black form of Mercury as it crosses the disk of the Sun–a rare transit that happens only 13 times each century on November 11th at Emera Astronomy Center. The Clark Telescope will be open from 7:00 am to 1:15pm for this event (weather permitting). Transits, are exceedingly uncommon, and the planet Mercury […]
