Geology, Meteorology, and Astronomy of the Southern Andes – A Reflection on a Journey to Patagonia!
August 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Saturday, August 27, 2022
If Tom Alena doesn’t end up falling off the face of the earth, he’ll have an enormous amount of scientific observations to share from his recent trip to Patagonia! What caused these mountains to form? Tom will discuss the rock formations and specimens observed on the trip. Why do storms spin the opposite way down there? As they unleash their energy upon these magnificent mountains, the kinds of clouds that form in the lee of the peaks are among some of the most remarkable atmospheric creations? We’ll demonstrate how they are formed. And then there are the stars! To observe the rotation of a different set of star constellations around the earth’s southern axis will seem like we are on a different planet. You won’t even need your mobility pass, vaccination status, or passport to join us for the trip down South! 3:00 p.m., ZOOM , Members: FREE Non-Members: $10.00.
