Around the world, Astronomy on Tap features games, talks, and quizzes by professional astronomers and educators in the informal setting of a local bar.

Astronomy on Tap is organized by professional astronomers connected to Aarhus University. All events are in (simple!) English and take place at Tir na nOg once a month - free of charge. We welcome all ages and backgrounds - a passion for beer and/or astronomy is a bonus!

Our first Aarhus edition will take place on Tuesday 19 September at 19.30 in the Merchant Room at Tir na nOg. Join us for an evening of informal astronomy and great beer! Our first event will feature:

- Cand. Scient. Majken B. E. Christensen, an astrophysicist out of STARPLAN in CPH, who now works as an outreach consultant in astronomy.

- Dr. Ole E. Bjælde is a cosmologist from Aarhus University, who now works as a Special Consultant for the Science and Technology Learning Lab at Aarhus University.

- In between the talks, there will be fun astronomical games and quizzes! Use this opportunity to improve your astronomical knowledge or just show off to your friends!

- To round off the evening there will be a presentation of current astronomical events in the night sky, in the news, etc.

AoT Aarhus 2017 is sponsored by Stellar Astrophysics Centre (SAC) at Aarhus University and Aarhus University Press.
