This week we're joined by special guests Travis Rector, Kimberly Arcand, and Meghan Watzke. These trio will talk to us about how the colors of the universe are captured in images across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. 

Fall is a fabulous time to watch the stars be born. The evening sky brings a line up of the Orion Star Forming Region, the Pleiades Open Cluster, and the well dispersed Hyades Cluster in the constellation Taurus. Across these systems star formation is captured in all its stages and all it beauty. In this episode, we'll talk about these clusters and ways you can best explore star formation through cool activities.
