Canada Geese Photo by Peter O'Connor

It is hard to imagine a time when Canada geese were so rare on Delmarva that in 1890, one was tacked to the post office door in St. Michaels so “townspeople could marvel at this rare bird.” Canada geese and other species have become the “come-back critters” of Delmarva. This course (a companion to the earlier “Come-Here Critters”) will look at four and examine the circumstances of their disappearance and consequences of their return

ALL Course: Mind-Blowing Images from the Hubble Space Telescope

May 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Van Lennep Auditorium at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum,
213 North Talbot Street, St. Michael, MD 21663 United States
+ Google Map
The arrangement of the spiral arms in the galaxy Messier 63, seen here in a new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, recall the pattern at the centre of a sunflower. So the nickname for this cosmic object — the Sunflower Galaxy — is no coincidence. Discovered by Pierre Mechain in 1779, the galaxy later made it as the 63rd entry into fellow French astronomer Charles Messier’s famous catalogue, published in 1781. The two astronomers spotted the Sunflower Galaxy’s glow in the small, northern constellation Canes Venatici (the Hunting Dogs). We now know this galaxy is about 27 million light-years away and belongs to the M51 Group — a group of galaxies, named after its brightest member, Messier 51, another spiral-shaped galaxy dubbed the Whirlpool Galaxy. Galactic arms, sunflowers and whirlpools are only a few examples of nature’s apparent preference for spirals. For galaxies like Messier 63 the winding arms shine bright because of the presence of recently formed, blue–white giant stars, readily seen in this Hubble image.

Join NASA Aerospace Engineer Russell Werneth for a presentation with mind-blowing images from NASA’s renowned Hubble Space Telescope.Werneth is famous for having successfully overseen EVA astronaut spacewalks to service the Hubble Space Telescope. He also played an important role in designing one-of-a-kind tools, procedures, and training protocols for shuttle missions to the Hubble.
