More information

Foothill College is just off the El Monte Road exit from Freeway 280 in Los Altos.

The lecture is co-sponsored by:

  • The Astronomical Society of the Pacific
  • The SETI Institute
  • NASA Ames Research Center
  • The Foothill College Astronomy Program

We get large crowds for these talks, so we ask people to try to arrive a little bit early to find parking. The lecture is free, but there is a charge of $3 for parking on campus and exact change is appreciated.
