Northern Nevada lecturer Mike Thomas will resume his history and science lectures at Jack C. Davis Observatory this week.
Thomas is planning to lecture about “Bad History” on Friday, Sept. 7 and “Coincidence” on Saturday, Sept. 8.
Both lectures are free to the public and begin at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
His “Bad History” presentation will focus on “factual” history that has proven to be false.
Thomas’ lecture on “Coincidence” will spotlight amazing situations in science and whether they are happenstance or destined to take place.
As is the case throughout the rest of the year, Jack C. Davis Observatory is the place to be on Saturday nights. When lectures aren’t scheduled, the observatory is open to the public from sundown to 11 p.m. These Saturday nights are referred to as Star Parties and are led by the Western Nevada Astronomical Society, which brings together people with an interest in astronomy.
Jack C. Davis Observatory is located at 2699 Van Patten Drive in Carson City.
