Institute for Astronomy Open House

April 29, 11:00am - 4:00pm
Manoa Campus, 2680 Woodlawn Drive

What happens when galaxies collide?

Is there now or was there ever life on Mars?

What are comets made of?

For answers to these and other astronomy-related questions, head for the annual UH Manoa Institute for Astronomy Open House on Sunday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at its Manoa headquarters at 2680 Woodlawn Drive.

There will be short talks on hot astronomical topics such as the search for habitable planets beyond our solar system, storms on the sun that affect Earth, and the transit of Venus that will be visible in Hawaii on June 5.

As in past years, there will be activities for both children and adults. You will be able to “Ask an Astronomer,” and if the weather and the sun cooperate, observe sunspots through a telescope. Activities especially for children will include sundial making, comet making, shows in the StarLab planetarium, and bottle-rocket launching.
