Fantastic Space Discoveries and Where to Find Them:The Search for Planet 9

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cary Area Public Library
Meeting Room

Event Details

As astronomers have amassed evidence of other planetary systems orbiting distant stars, they wonder why our family of planets lacks the most common type of exoplanet found -- the "super-earth".  Astronomers have recently detected indirect evidence that the planetary census of our Solar System may be incomplete. Could there be an as yet undiscovered planet in the outer realm, far beyond the domain of the known planets?  Join Jim Kovac for a presentation about the search for Planet 9. Then venture outside for Astronomy Night.
Event Type(s): Adults, Teens
