The Lives of Stars

Presented By: Stellar Vista Observatory and University of Utah South Physics Observatory

Date: Sunday, September 20, 2020.

Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM MDT.

Learn how stars are born, what they’re made of, how long they live, and what they do while they’re alive. What can you tell by looking at the color of a star? What kind of material remains in space after a star dies? Come listen and find out!
