    Oumuamua

    Wed at 07:30 PM
    Open to Public

    In October of 2017, the Solar system received its first recorded visitor from another star system. This asteroid, named `Oumuamua, passed by the Sun and planets at a high rate of speed, giving astronomers only a brief chance to understand its mysteries. I'll discuss what we thought we knew before it's visit, what we learned, and what we hope to learn as we watch the skies for the next visitor.
