Rainwater Observatory in French Camp Mississippi will be offering a free public program called, “Cosmic Rays, Neutrinos, and Subterranean Observatories”. This presentation will be given on Friday, July 13, 2012 at 7:00pm by Jarrod Marsh from the Astronomy-Physics department at Mississippi State University, Starkville. This fascinating and educational presentation explores the incredible subatomic world of particle astrophysics with an emphasis on ultra high energy neutrinos and a survey of neutrino observatories.After the presentation, weather permitting, an observing session will be held using Rainwater’s collection of powerful telescopes including the largest in Mississippi. The planetarium can be used if the outdoor observing is clouded out. Rainwater Observatory and Planetarium is located one mile east of the Natchez Trace Parkway off MS Highway 413 near the village of French Camp in Mississippi. Come early and enjoy Steak Night at the Council House Café, another support ministry of French Camp Academy.
