10am—5pm Tuesday—Saturday | Noon—5pm Sunday | Closed Monday



Join us on the fourth Wednesday of the month when the universe takes center stage during a live evening focused on the stars, night skies, latest news in the world of astronomy and more! Some Stelliferous programs include discussion of where our stars, planets and constellations are headed; others include topical astronomy lectures about ongoing research. Both types of programs offer plenty of opportunity for Q&A!

In March, we’re featuring Astrophysicist Dr. Jamie Tayar, Assistant Professor of Astronomy at the University of Florida. She’ll discuss how she uses spectroscopy and asteroseismology to better understand stars, inside and out!

Born in Broward County, Tayar studied at the California Institute of Technology, The Ohio State University, and worked at the University of Hawai’i before coming back to Florida. Her research focuses on stars, how they grow, how they change, and what that tells us about the physics going on inside them. She uses that physics to understand things about stars, the planets that orbit them, and the evolution of our own and other galaxies.

  • When: Wednesday, March 23, in The Planetarium
  • Cost: $5 for members of the Discovery Society; $8 for all others
