July 22 will feature an event titled “Exploring the summer skies: Astronomy and developments in space research at York” presented by Paul Delaney, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Faculty of Science and director of the Allan I. Carswell Astronomical Observatory at York University. The talk will take place online through Zoom at 12 p.m., and registration is required.

With the warmth of summer nights and clear skies, it is a wonderful time to explore the wonders of our galaxy and beyond. With or without optical aid, it is easy to fall in love with astronomy and to be fascinated by the chance to watch humanity’s next steps in the exploration of Mars. In this webinar and Q-and-A, Delaney will be describing exciting developments in space and what we can see overhead during the coming months at home.

The series will continue on Aug. 5 with a 12 p.m. webinar about food security and York’s Maloca Community Garden presented by Silvia Vasquez-Olguin, Faculty of Environmental Studies.

The Scholars’ Hub events are done in partnership with Vaughan Public Libraries, Markham Public Library and Aurora Public Library, and presented by York Alumni Engagement. Students, alumni and all members of the community are welcome to attend.
