Astronomy expert to speak at UNT Sky theater

The stars that travel outside of the solar system and have one or more planets circling them, dubbed exoplanets, can be spotted even by amateur astronomers. 

Dennis M. Conti, chairman of the American Association of Variable Star Observers' exoplanet section, will teach amateurs how to see them during a presentation at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7 at UNT's Sky Theater at 1704 W. Mulberry St. 

He'll also talk about how to find and share data about the search for life on other planets. Scientists believe some exoplanets could potentially harbor life. 

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are needed because of limited seating. Contact the Sky Theater at 940-369-8213 or skytheater@unt.edu for reservations.
