UT Professor speaks to SJH eighth graders about astronomy

Body
For the past few weeks, the Schulenburg Junior High eighth graders have been learning about the components of the universe. So, what better way to help them understand what is really going on out there than to invite someone who studies it for a living? Mrs. Carol Hargadine contacted Professor Chris Sneden from The University of Texas to come and speak with the students about stars. Professor Sneden shared with the students that he is originally from Pittsburgh, and that he developed his love for astronomy at the age of about 12. He went to college at Haverford for his undergrad and The University of Texas for grad school. After graduating, he bounced around different universities until he landed a teaching position at UT. Professor Sneden talked about the McDonald Observatory, and the impressive telescopes that he is able to use to help study the stars. He talked about the range of colors the stars have and how they are classified. He also talked about the difference in stars and how they look in clusters.
