The Salina Astronomy Club (SAC) is getting set to explore the “Dark Side,” of the universe.
According to Jeffrey Kasoff with SAC, members will hold their monthly meeting at Kansas Wesleyan University on January 18 in Peters Science Hall.
“Journey to the dark side has nothing to do with Star Wars, the Death Star or dark forces,” Kasoff said.
The meeting instead is aimed at explaining why scientists are looking for evidence of dark matter and dark energy in the universe.
The presentation from Kasoff will be followed by a short Q&A session, light refreshments, and an opportunity to observe the night sky in the KWU Observatory, weather permitting.
If the skies do not cooperate, the Salina Astronomy Club will still give a tour of the observatory.
Everyone is invited and welcome to this free event Friday, January 19 at 7:30 pm, Room 229, Peters Science Hall at Kansas Wesleyan University.
