AAA Lecture – Explaining the Diversity of Extrasolar Worlds

March 12 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Register via Zoom

Join us for our March lecture in our 2023-24 AAA Lecture Series with speaker Dr. Genaro Suárez of the American Museum of Natural History.

Extrasolar worlds have a variety of appearances produced by different physical and/or chemical phenomena occurring in their atmospheres.  Observations using space telescopes like James Webb and Spitzer allow us to investigate such phenomena. I will show recent results we found using these telescopes, which inform on the complexity of extrasolar world atmospheres. Particularly, I will talk about exotic sandy clouds that influence how an exoplanet looks like.

The Amateur Astronomers Association Lecture Series is held on the second Tuesday of each month, from October–May, beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern time.

Lectures are free and open to the public, but registration via Zoom is required.

Dr. Suárez is an astronomer originally from Susticacán, Zacatecas, Mexico, currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Brown Dwarfs in New York City (BDNYC) research group at the Department of Astrophysics, American Museum of Natural History in New York. Before moving to NYC, Dr. Suárez was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Western Ontario in London, ON, Canada. He earned his Ph.D. in Astrophysics and Master in Astrophysics at the Institute of Astronomy, UNAM in Ensenada, BC, Mexico.
