Hot Topics in Astrom
Main Library
Friday, May. 8, 1:00 p.m.
Dr. Billy Teets will talk a little about the Dyer Observatory and also what will be visible in the summer sky this year, including some upcoming celestial events.  He will show us how to create “star wheels” to help us locate objects in the evening sky throughout the year.  He will also talk about exoplanets which are planets that have been discovered around stars other than the Sun.  Exoplanet research has become one of the hottest fields of astronomy over the past decade.

Dr. Billy Teets is the outreach astronomer at Vanderbilt University’s Dyer Observatory.  He was born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee, and received his B.S. in Physics in 2004 from Austin Peay State University.  He was accepted into the Vanderbilt University graduate program in 2005 and received his Ph.D. in (astro)physics in 2012.  He has worked at Dyer Observatory since 2006, starting as a part-time student helper, then becoming the staff astronomer in late 2012.  As Dyer’s outreach astronomer, you can find Billy giving tours around the observatory, operating telescopes at public events, working with school groups that visit Dyer during field trips and answering questions about space and physics enthusiastically.
