Van Vlack Party

From Michaela Fisher ’17:

Interested in astronomy and/or the histories of astronomy and education? Want to party in the Van Vleck Observatory? As part of a series of events celebrating the observatory’s centennial, we are honoring the 143rd birthday of Frederick Slocum, Van Vleck’s first director, this Saturday, February 6th at 7 p.m..

Along with snacks and refreshments, Research Associate Professor of Astronomy Roy Kilgard and Professor of History Amrys Williams will be recreating a 1916-­era public astronomy lecture in period attire using original lantern slides and projector from the observatory’s collections. A Q&A session will follow the lecture, and if the conditions permit, the newly restored 20” refracting telescope will be open for observing!

Film Series: Mean Girls

2004. USA. Dir: Mark Waters. With Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams. 97 min.


A naïve teen must navigate high school cliques, crushes, and the draconian rules of Girl World after a lifetime of home schooling abruptly comes to an end. An immensely quotable script by Tina Fey and a hilarious supporting cast make for one of the most essential teen movies in recent memory – it’s so fetch.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5
