Meet Astrophysicist Jackie Faherty at Intrepid's Astronomy Night

Sep 09, 2019 - 3:50pm

Summer may be coming to a close but there is plenty to look forward to this fall at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. One event, in particular, is our Astronomy Night on October 25th. Coinciding with our final Free Friday of 2019, Astronomy Night will feature Astrophysicist and senior scientist at the American Museum of Natural History Jackie Faherty. Faherty's expertise in the field of Astrophysics, brown dwarf, and exoplanet atmosphere detection and characterization makes her a perfect guest for our upcoming Astronomy Night. In addition to exploring our Space Shuttle Pavilion, attendees can enjoy a talk led by Faherty about exoplanets, tying into the Halloween theme of the evening. Join us for this spooky evening next month! Space is limited. First come, first served.
