Event Horizon Telescope Announcement

Caryl D. Philips Space Theater

Watch the upcoming Black Hole Announcement live at the Boonshoft!

The Event Horizon Telescope, actually a global network of telescopes, has been working to capture the first ever image of a black hole. On April 10 at 9 a.m. EDT, the National Science Foundation will hold a press conference to announce a groundbreaking result.

Join the Astronomy staff at the Boonshoft Museum and watch the announcement live in the planetarium. After the announcement, we will follow up with a short program called Journey to the Center of the Milky Way, about the black hole at the center of our own galaxy. We will also have astronomers on hand to answer questions, and show more black hole imagery in our state of the art planetarium.
