The Battle Point Astronomical Association will present the planetarium show “Active Galactic Nuclei: Quasars & Blazars & Seyferts, Oh My!” at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, June 8 at the Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory at Battle Point Park.

Join chief scientist Steve Ruhl for a look at Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) — some of the brightest and most dynamic objects in the universe.

The planetarium show is free to members of the BPAA; a $2 donation is suggested for nonmembers, $5 for families.
