What is a black hole? Learn about them, and see the night skies, during the free Astronomy Open House Friday, Dec. 2, at Arizona State University.

The event will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., on the roof of the Bateman Physical Sciences Center H-Wing, Tempe campus.

At 8:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., astrophysics graduate student Matt Mechtley will give a talk on “Quasars and Their Supermassive Black Hole Engines.”

Visitors are invited to go to the ASU Planetarium for shows about the night sky. (limited seating)
