Beneath the Same Sky: A Vatican Astronomer and a Civil War General Speak to Louisville About the Heavens
What do a Civil War general and a Vatican astronomer have in common? If they are astronomers Major General Ormsby Mitchel and Vatican Observatory Director Guy Consolmagno, then it is their uncanny ability to communicate the science of astronomy to the general public. And thanks to Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society and to Jefferson Community & Technical College, these two leading astronomers – one from the 19th century and the other from the 21st century – will share the stage at the Louisville Free Public Library's Main Branch for "Beneath the Same Sky: A Vatican Astronomer and a Civil War General Speak to Louisville About the Heavens." Kentucky-born astronomer Ormsby Mitchel was founder of the Cincinnati Observatory. Thanks to The Frazier History Museum, he will be at the Main Library to speak about his work. American astronomer Guy Consolmagno, Director of the Vatican Observatory and winner of the 2014 Carl Sagan Medal for Excellence in Public Communication in Planetary Science, will also speak. Beneath the Same Sky will be held at the Main Library, 301 York St. in Louisville, Wednesday, December 9, at 7 p.m. The event is free, but tickets are required.
