NASA launched a space shuttle for the very last time. The Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to a group of astronomers for proving that the expansion of the universe is accelerating. In this talk I will rank, present, and explain 11 of the most compelling astronomical discoveries and events of the past year. Come to get caught up on the past year's astronomy stories, to reminisce, or to ask about something from the news. Lecture: 7:00-7:30 PM  Telescope Observation: 7:30-9:00 PM
