Please note that if a talk has filled and while the talk is going on, you do not need a reservation to still tour the
Observatory, talk with SAS members in the dome, and look through telescopes if clear. On crowded nights, reservations are needed for
going up to the dome after the talk has finished. Individuals with reservations for the talk automatically get a group number for
going up to the dome, distributed in the order the reservations were made.

- October 16 7:00 pm (full) & 8:00 pm Dr. Ana Larson "The Secrets of the Universe Revealed in a Map" Thought once to be the result of pigeon droppings in a Bell Laboratories horn antenna, the static signature of the leftover heat from the birth of the Universe surrounds everything everywhere. On this final open house of the 2013 observing season, we will cover the current model of how the Universe formed and what it contains as deduced from observations from the
Planck Mission satellite. Play a musical instrument? Can hit an A note? Bring it and we will replicate the density pressure waves of the universe at the moment light and matter went their separate ways.
