2020 Lecture Series


The term “20-20” is a synonym for having clear vision.  For the year 2020 the Drake Observatory lecture series will present a clear vision of our Solar System.  During the coming year we will follow the birth, formation, exploration and subsequent fanciful missions to the far reaches of our solar system including a stop at each of the planets, dwarf planets and some of the comets.


Lectures begin at 8:00 pm  | The Lectures will be given on ZOOM  |  The invitation for each week will be posted on the bottom of this notice.


The Spring/Summer series will run for May 15 - July 10

Spring/Summer: “On The Orion Spur” The formation of a solar system and its evolution and: “Taking A Closer Look” The actual investigation of our Solar System by probes.
