Maria Mitchell was the first female professional astronomer in the United States. She became instantly famous in October, 1847 when she discovered and charted the orbit of a new comet, which became known as “Miss Mitchell’s Comet.” Poet Cynthia Kirby Reilley will recite a narrative about Mitchell, followed by an astronomically inspired art activity. The event will take place in the Pedernales Building, Room 104.
