A Universe of Galaxies It wasn't until Edwin Hubble in 1925 was able to look through the Mt. Wilson telescope and find stars inside other galaxies that we realized that all the objects we could see at night were not in our own Milky Way galaxy. In fact, as we know today, the entire universe is composed of millions of galaxies just like our own. What have we learned about the galaxies in the last 100 years?
Information for Visitors:
Our Public Star Parties begin with a short presentation in the Meeting Barn. This is followed by an activity that gives children a hands-on opportunity to learn something about astronomy. Then we head out to the parking lot to observe the heavens through our telescopes. Or bring your own!
