Kathy Woods…The full moon brought out many sky enthusiasts to the Wavelength Brew Company at 236 Main Street in Historic Downtown Vista. We found Hans Haas, the Owner of Wavelength, stated that with the clear skies this evening, we would be able to view the Moon, Saturn and Mars and it was quite spectacular to see. Wavelength is now open 7 days a week.
Wavelength has many events coming up. Check their Facebook page.
Join them on Friday, June 24th for a tour of Earth from space!
The vast and growing cityscapes of Earth have changed the face of our planet, as well as our night. Our cities seen from space can certainly look beautiful and tell the story of our growth, but what other impacts could all this lighting have? Wavelength is honored to welcome Professor Scott Kardel to the tasting room to share his amazing presentation on City Lights from Space.
Scott has always had a love for astronomy and the universe. Growing up in the desert on the edge of Tucson, Arizona gave him a strong connection to the sky and the environment. He used that connection first to become a high school earth science teacher, where he installed an observatory for his school.
After completing a Master’s Degree in astronomy from the University of Arizona, Scott took his passion for the stars to Kansas, where he served as assistant director for the Lake Afton Public Observatory. Prior to coming to the International Dark-Sky Association, Scott served for eight years as the public affairs coordinator for Palomar Observatory. He directed their public outreach program and was the observatory’s representative on light pollution issues. He is a lifetime member of the IDA and was awarded the IDA’s Executive Director Special Award in 2007. Scott is currently a professor of astronomy at Palomar College, as well as assistant director of the Palomar Planetarium.
Right after the event, marine layer permitting, we’ll bust out our telescopes for your enjoyment!So grab a pint and prepare yourself for more live science at Wavelength! Cheers!
