Witches and aliens are the topics for a pair of Mike Thomas talks during his December Lecture Series at Western Nevada College’s Jack C. Davis Observatory.
Thomas’ presentation on “Witches” is set for Friday, Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m. This lecture focuses on the history of sorcery, the Salem Witch Trials and witchcraft today.
Thomas plans a light-hearted talk on “Aliens in the Movies” on Saturday, Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
Both talks are free to the public and require attendees to wear facial coverings. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Following Thomas’ “Aliens in the Movies” presentation is the weekly Star Party. These weekly Saturday night gatherings from sundown to 11 p.m. are presented by the Western Nevada Astronomical Society. Newcomers are always invited to join in the fun of learning more about the universe.
The observatory is located at 2699 Vanpatten Drive in Carson City.
