COLUMBIA — The top 10 sky phenomena that can be seen by the naked eye from mid-Missouri will be discussed Wednesday at the monthly Cosmic Conversations event, according to a news release.

MU astronomy experts will discuss what amateur astronomers can see without using expensive equipment, as well as visible constellations and planets in the late winter and spring. Participants can also view the stars on the observatory deck after the lecture, according to the release. 

The event will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Laws Observatory in the Physics Building at MU.

Cosmic Conversations is held the first Wednesday of each month and is hosted by the physics and astronomy department at MU, along with the Central Missouri Astronomical Association.
