In our new monthly speaker series, special guests bring the most relevant topics in space science and astronomy to the Planetarium. 

Dr. Abhimat Gautam is a postdoctoral researcher at UCLA, studying the star population and the dynamical environment near the supermassive black hole in the Milky Way Galactic center. He uses observations collected with the Keck telescopes located on Maunakea in Hawaii and the Hubble Space Telescope to study the stellar populations at the Galactic center.

Dr. Gautam's presentation will discuss how to find the center of the Milky Way in the night sky and how astronomers observe the center of the galaxy with some of the most powerful telescopes on Earth. The Galactic Center is a unique and interesting environment and laboratory, filled with many recent and exciting discoveries, including the supermassive black hole which won the 2020 Nobel Prize in physics.

Followed by a Q&A session. Starts 7 p.m.
