Award-winning author and astronomer Emily Levesque will speak about her book “The Last Stargazers: The Enduring Story of Astronomy’s Vanishing Explorers” on Thursday, January 6 from 7 to 8 p.m. on Zoom. The Last Stargazers is a popular science article intended for anyone spellbound by the night sky. Stargazing is a quest that continues to fascinate us: from Copernicus to Carl Sagan, astronomers throughout history have spent their lives trying to answer the universe’s biggest questions. Astronomer Emily Levesque shares the stories of modern day astronomers, people willing to venture to the tops of high mountains and to some of the most remote corners of the planet, all in the name of science. “The Last Stargazers” is a love letter to astronomy and an affirmation of the crucial role humans can and must play in the future of scientific discovery. Emily Levesque is professor of astronomy at the University of Washington in Seattle. Levesque will speak with Shannon Calvert, President of the Westport Astronomical Society. Registration is compulsory. An email link will be provided to all registrants a few days before the event. Go to elmstreetbooks.com to order a pocket edition of “The Last Stargazers”.
