Our universe is so big and full of mystery, it can be hard to know what’s true about space and what’s a bit out there. This lecture presented by astronomer Matt Marulla will help you distinguish fact from fiction. Matt will discuss a variety of unusual astronomical beliefs, from the moon landing being faked to being able to balance an egg on its end during the spring equinox. He’ll set the record straight as to what’s accurate astronomy and what’s mere celestial superstition.The program is co-sponsored by the Keene Amateur Astronomy Club.
