  2. Ames Area Amateur Astronomers - The Big Bang

    March 16, 2019, 7:00 PM @ Conservation Center

    The AAAA host monthly educational programs for the public on the 3rd Saturday of each month, except December, starting at 7:00 PM. We congregate at 7 PM for a Meet and Greet with the meeting starting at 7:30. All programs will be held at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park unless noted otherwise in the program for that month. Afterwards, weather and sunset permitting, we will move to the club's Observatory located just East of the Story County Conservation Center for astronomical observing. Telescopes and binoculars will be available for your viewing pleasure. The Big Bang is popularly but misleadingly presented as having started at an infinitesimal point. That concept depends entirely on an observer’s point of view in space of which there is an infinite number. An accurate account of the Big Bang explains that the sudden expansion of the cosmos 13.87 billion years ago began everywhere, not just at a singular point. Vern Naffier will explain why this is so.
