The Mike Thomas Lecture Series visits Western Nevada College’s Jack C. Davis Observatory in November for a presentation on mankind’s first civilization’s oldest story, as well as a talk on the possibility that aliens have previously visited Earth.
On Friday, Nov. 9, Thomas will provide a slide show on “Gilgamesh,” focusing on early civilization from 5,000 years ago.
“Alien Visitors” will be Thomas’ topic a night later on Saturday, Nov. 10 at the observatory. Thomas will discuss whether aliens have visited our planet in the past.
Both presentations start at 6:30 p.m. and are open to the public. Doors to Jack C. Davis Observatory open at 6 p.m.
When talks aren’t planned, the observatory is open to the public from sundown to 11 p.m. on Saturday nights. At this time, the Western Nevada Astronomical Society leads Star Parties at the observatory, which is located at 2699 Van Patten Drive in Carson City.
