Public Lectures on Astronomy

I have a series of public lectures that I like to give on topics such as astrophysics, the history of astronomy, cultural astronomy, and observational astronomy (stargazing). I give public lectures occasionally at the Leitner Observatory in New Haven, and I also occasionally give these lectures for amateur astronomy clubs, civic groups, school groups, and universities. I am continually updating my lectures, and they can be adapted for almost any public audience.

I enjoy giving these lectures, so if you would like to have me speak to your group, please contact me, and we can work something out. In many cases I'm happy to come and speak in exchange for travel reimbursement.

Examples of lectures I have given in the past:
