"The Brilliancy of an Unclouded Night: Popular Astronomy in the Regency Era"

Sunday, Apr 7, 2013 1:30p to 3:00p

Dr. James Ashley,postdoctoral fellow at the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera Science Operations Center of Arizona State University explores the subject of the night sky in the world of well-bred, late-18th Century English gentle-folk, and revisits the notion that Jane Austen might have been familiar not only with a few of the night sky's features, but also with the mental state of the Regency-era Natural Philosopher.We'll also contrast/compare cosmology of the 18th Cent. with that of today.
