Almost 200 people attended the recent GCU Astronomy Night hosted by College of Science, Engineering and Technology adjunct associate professor Dr. Peter Pingerelli, assistant professor of physics Dr. Tom McCarthy and graduate teaching assistant Jean Etnyre. On hand for the evening of stargazing was the Astronomical Association of Arizona and Rick Gutridge of Peoria-based Technical Research & Engineering Co., which provided tours of the solar system via a spaceflight simulator for STEM education. Participants also had the chance to sharpen their astrophotography skills.
