Come learn about the Universe with Astronomy on Tap!
Astronomy on Tap events are hosted around the world. You will
interact with professional and amateur astronomers as they share their
knowledge of the cosmos in an informal venue. Each event consists of two
or three short talks on an astronomy-related topic. Between talks, you
can test your knowledge with trivia and games to win astronomy-themed
prizes! We hope you will join us at this free and family-friendly event!
The next Astronomy on Tap event in Charlottesville will begin at 6:30

but you are welcome to come and go at your leisure.
Following Astronomy on Tap, Champion will host their movie night with the space-western “Serenity” at 8:30 PM.
