All right, can you guys hear me? Okay awesome.Welcome everyone. Thank you for braving the cloudy weather. I know that's notalways great for turnout, but it's still a good turnoutthis is our final event of the of the year andBut we have a whole host of additional events coming up for the next six monthsthe first of whichThere was a flyer outsideFor there's a lunar eclipse next monthThat basically happens at the time that we would normally be having the lecture,unfortunatelyIt's a Sunday instead of a Friday, but we're still going to do it anywayso our next event is there's gonna be a lecture given by a postdoc here who workson LIGO ongravitational wave astronomy and then afterwards we'll have will go out and viewthelunar eclipse that's going on with our normal stargazing out on the field as wellas just like viewing the Eclipse because it'sRaise your hand if you've seen a lunar eclipse before.So the moon turns red and all of thatSo it'll be fun.But we'll also look at other objects in the sky like the Orion Nebula and thePleiades and the AndromedaGalaxy and so on and so forth, so it should be good and if it clears up tonight,we'll probably do thatBut I don't anticipate it clearing up tonight, unfortunatelyAnd we also haveAstronomy on tap events which are in addition to our monthly lecture series thatyou're at nowWe have these astronomy on tap events that take place in a bar in Old Town Pasadenawhere we have informal talks given byastronomers here at Caltech or the Carnegie observatories or JPL or various otherinstitutions and you can have beers andTalk with astronomers and hear about astronomy in a less formalEnvironment and it's totally free.
