Experts in astronomy and related fields discuss their research about different topics in astrophysics.

Due to issues over social distancing, the Astronomy Mini Symposium will not be occurring this year.

Listen to experts across astronomy fields gather to discuss the important research currently in different areas of astrophysics. This symposium will be hosted by research experts and attended by both students and members of the public interested in everything from asteroids to planet formation to galaxies. This is an exciting opportunity to see cutting edge research and discussion in action.

After the talks, our cafe will be open with food and drinks available for purchase. The event wraps up with a Q&A panel session back in the planetarium with the scientists.
