Is the universe expanding? Alex Filippenko says yes and explains why to an audience at the UNH Observatory. Filippenko was invited by NH astronomer John Gianforte to last fall's NEFAF at UNH Observatory. Windows to the Wild plans to feature Gianforte in a future episode as he demonstrates how to observe the night sky from your backyard, hiking trail or any favorite place in the outdoors.
