Lake Afton Public Observatory Presents: Black Holes in Space2-day event: 8/23/2013 - 8/24/2013
Location: Lake Afton Public Observatory
During late spring and early summer, the Lake Afton Public Observatory presents the program, "Black Holes in Space."

During the program you will have the opportunity to observe Saturn and its beautiful ring system; a supergiant red star that will probably become a black hole when it dies; a multiple star system; a globular cluster of stars, which contains a massive black hole; and a galaxy that contains a super-massive black hole at its core. While you are observing these objects, the Observatory staff will talk about the many mysteries surrounding black holes.
"Black Holes in Space" will be presented on Friday and Saturday evenings.
