About the series
Astronomy at the rendezvous is a national phenomenon where professional astronomers give informal science talks in local bars with pub anecdotes and interactions with the public. Caltech scientists organize the Los Angeles Astronomy Chapter on tap one Monday per month. We occasionally host events in Bishop, CA, Mountain Rambler Brewery.
Each event consists of two informal scientific lectures of approximately 15 minutes given by researchers in astronomy, physics and space sciences, followed by questions and answers. The second half of the night is dedicated to astronomy-themed trivia with plenty of interaction with the audience. For more information and recordings of past events, please see the Caltech Astro Outreach website and the Caltech Astro YouTube Page.
