Dr. Roy Torley Presents: The Northern Lights: Silk of the Gods

 

Friday, April 7th at 1:30 p.m.

Imagine the night sky shimmering in an ever-changing tapestry of light.  Dr. Torley takes you on a fascinating celestial field trip to enjoy their shapes and colors here on Earth, and on other planets in the Solar System.

 

Cornell Estates welcomes back Dr. Roy Torley, Gentleman Scientist, for another of his spectacular lectures. In this talk, Dr. Roy Torley will take you on a trip into outer space to orbit the Earth, see its magnetic field, see the northern and southern lights, and the planets and moons of our solar system.  Our trip will even fly us by the volcanic eruption of Jupiter’s moon, named Io.  Dr. Torley will share with you a powerful program designed to teach and put the wonder back into astronomy and the cosmos!

 

Roy Torley has an extensive science background including the study of volcanoes, Oregon geology and the Northern Lights. He has a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Oregon, and was instrumental in developing the first wind-energy technology program on the west coast at Columbia Gorge Community College in the The Dalles.
