Exploring the Universe: A Deep Dive into the Wonders of the Night Sky by Jessica Vineyard “Ms. Galaxy”

June 11 @ 7:00 pm


FREE ADMISSION – 1757 Ashland St., Ashland, OR. One mile west of I-5 Exit 14

Join Jessica Vineyard, aka Ms. Galaxy, as she takes you on a journey into the farthest reaches of the cosmos. Her engaging and entertaining presentations make astronomy fun, entertaining, and easy to understand. This is a don’t-miss opportunity!

We live in an extraordinary time with respect to exploration of the universe. The Hubble Space Telescope, launched in 1990, and the James Webb Telescope, launched in 2021, have expanded our view of the universe beyond all expectations. Utilizing the phenomenal images that these space telescopes have sent back to our home planet, Ms Galaxy will share her extensive knowledge of the stars and deep sky objects, including globular clusters, galaxies, supernovas, and more.

Jessica Vineyard, “Ms. Galaxy” has found that most people are curious about and interested in the night sky and all its wondrous glories, but very few have more than a passing understanding of the spectacular images taken by our space telescopes. The size and distance of these stunningly beautiful objects are beyond our human comprehension, but we can certainly marvel at and appreciate our current understanding of how they came into being and what, exactly, we’re looking at.

Ms. Galaxy founded the Southern Oregon Skywatchers Astronomy Club in 1993 and was president for five years. She co-hosted The Milky Way Starlight Theater on JPR, wrote astronomy articles for a local paper, and has brought astronomy to the public through summer camps, library talks, OLLI classes, homeschooling, and more. She is available for private star parties (under the stars with a telescope). Her mission is to make astronomy fun, entertaining, and accessible to everyone.
