6:30pm to 8:00pm

People have deeply-held misconceptions about the most basic of astronomical topics, such as the cause of the seasons. In this profusely-illustrated, non-technical presentation, we will gently "correct" these "heavenly errors," from everyday life, to exotic black holes, to the birth of the universe, to "fake news" about fringe topics. Simple demonstrations will be used where possible.
