Location: Tap Root Public House
Presenter: Dr. Travis Rector – University of Alaska Anchorage

“Everyone loves pictures of space. But have you ever wondered if that’s what they really look like? Or if the colors are real? For over twenty years UAA astronomer Dr. Travis A. Rector has been making color astronomical images with some of the world’s largest telescopes. In this talk Dr. Rector will give a behind-the-scenes look at what professional astronomers do, and what they don’t do, when making these beautiful images. He’ll also share with people images and stories from his new book, called Coloring the Universe.”
