Discover how stars tell the history of the Milky Way

The Frontiers of Astronomy series will continue Thursday, Nov. 12, from 8 to 9 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

Jennifer Johnson, professor of astronomy at Ohio State University, will give a presentation titled “The History of the Milky Way Written in the Stars.”

She will discuss how the galaxy has grown and evolved for the past 13 billion years and explain how the stars provide a “fossil record.” In her talk, she will address how astronomers, engineers and technical staff have worked to survey the sky with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

Admission is free.
