Coloring the Universe

March 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Everyone marvels over images from space, but have you ever wondered if the colors you see are true? For more than 20 years, Travis A. Rector, an astronomer at the University of Alaska at Anchorage, has created color astronomical images using some of the world’s largest telescopes, including Kitt Peak, Gemini Observatory, and Hubble.

Rector will share a behind-the-scenes look at what professional astronomers do—and what they don’t do—to make these stunning images. His work inspired his new book Coloring the Universe: An Insider’s Look at Making Spectacular Images of Space. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.

Tickets: $12 member, $15 nonmember
