Black Rock Observatory to Visit Long Beach Sierra Club
2016-11-28 · By Editor
The Black Rock Observatory is a unique mobile astronomical observatory that brings the wonders of the cosmos to the young and young at heart. With a giant, hand-made telescope and meteorite samples, volunteers with the Black Rock Observatory help to showcase our amazing place in the universe. Using tools like a spectroscope they show the chemical makeup of stars billions of light years away and how similar they are to our own sun.
At the monthly meeting of the Long Beach Area Sierra Club Group, the Black Rock Observatory will be visiting to provide a special presentation to anyone that wants to learn more about the stars.
The Sierra Club Long Beach Group is part of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club. The group has more than 2,500 members and serves Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, Lakewood, Long Beach, Los Alamitos, Signal Hill and Seal Beach.
The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. on December 7, 2016 at the Environmental Services Bureau, 2929 E Willow St, Long Beach. It is free, and open to the public.
