Hosted by Drs. Dave Robinson, Ashley Best, Trent Garrison, and the rest of the Bench Talk Team.
The show repeats weekly each Monday 7:30pm, Tuesday 11:30am, and Wednesday 7:30am
​
This show is about bringing science to the people.  We want to be a clearinghouse for the research that is important to all of us.  So we’ve spent the week scouring the library stacks for research publications that are just too interesting to be ignored.

The University of Kentucky Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to welcome the public to our astronomical observatory. Part of our program of public outreach is a presentation on an interesting topic in astronomy followed by a visit to the observatory.  The Kentucky SkyTalk is held on the second Thursday of each month.  A 50 minute program on astronomy will begin at 7:00 PM in Room 155 of the Chemistry-Physics Building. After the presentation, you are invited to view the sky through our 20-inch telescope, weather permitting. (Note that the starting time changes in the spring and fall.)



Free parking is available on the top floor of parking structure #2, (see special note at top), next to the observatory. With the exception of paid parking, without a valid parking permit, leaving your vehicle somewhere other than the parking structure at the observatory will result in a parking citation.
 
All are welcome and there is no charge. Tell your neighbors. Bring your kids.
 
Weather Caveat: If the university closes for a weather emergency, the SkyTalk will be postponed and the observatory will not be open.
