February 3, 2011 @ 12:00 am
An evening with author Michael Byers (Percival's Planet) to celebrate Kansan Clyde Tombaugh and the Discovery of Pluto. We plan to FILL THE KU UNION BALLROOM to honor Dr. Tombaugh and his discovery of Pluto on Feb. 18, 1930, including guided discussions of astronomical topics, a Tombaugh birthday cake (Feb. 4, 1906) and a book signing. Free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. A public observing session will occur after the event.
