Alfred McEwen at Steward Observatory

Monday, September 25 at 7:30 p.m. – With tantalizing and artistic glimpses of actively eroding slopes, impact craters, strange polar landscapes, and avalanches, Alfred McEwen and Ari Espinoza present a selection of the most stunning images collected from HiRISE and recently published in the book Mars: The Pristine Beauty of the Red Planet. The event is part of the UA’s Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory’s Public Evening Lecture Series. Following the lecture, there will be a book signing, reception, and, weather permitting, the Raymond E. White, Jr. Reflector in the historic Steward Observatory dome will open for public viewing of the night sky.
