July 14th, 2018 – Variable Stars

When you look up at the stars, they seem to shine with a steady light.  However, did you know that there are some stars that change in brightness?  These types of stars are called Variable Stars and each of have their own personality in how they change in brightness.  Variable Stars are very important to Astronomy as they assist Astronomers in understanding stellar evolution and determine the distances of far off galaxies.

Long time Columbus Astronomical Society member and Past President of the Society, Jason Hissong will be presenting on these fascinating stars at our next meeting.
