Tides In & Out of the Solar System
Tides are the result of gravitational interactions and they create some of the most beautiful structures in space. Please join Suzanne Metlay for a lively discussion of these lovely, ever-changing features in and beyond our solar system, from planetary ring structures to galactic mergers.
