Join us for the December AstroTour! The entire evening is free and no registration is required. Room 103 in McLennan Physical Laboratories (60 St. George Street). Miranda Herman, a PhD candidate in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto, will be sharing her expertise on cold giant planets! uoft.me/astrotours

Cold gas giant planets with long orbital periods make up half of the planets in our Solar System, yet we have observed only a handful of similar exoplanets around other stars. Is this due to the limitations set by our observation methods, or are cold giants truly rare in nature? In this talk I will explore the difficulties associated with finding such exoplanets, describe my efforts to increase the number of known cold giants, and discuss how they can inform us about the population of exoplanets as a whole.

After the talk, join us for telescope observing (weather dependent), planetarium shows, and other astronomy activities!

Due to limited seating, tickets for the planetarium shows will be available outside the auditorium at 7:45PM on a first-come first-served basis.
