Public events are optional objectives advertised in-game on the top left of the screen as "Event Incoming (Optional)" on story missions & patrol missions. Once the notification has appeared, a waypoint appears on the map to assist with locating the event. You can join an event by proceeding to the area where it is occurring & joining in the fight.

Common objectives are to destroy an enemy walker, to kill a VIP (enemy leader) before he escapes, or to defend a point on the map from several waves of enemies. Missions are timed; times I have seen last about 3-5 minutes.

Events are usually difficult to complete individually until you have leveled your characters & weapons up significantly, however if you join in with other players, they can be exceptionally easier.

You have to complete ten public events with gold level (three stars). To earn three stars, you have to complete the identified objective within the time limit. Successful completions earn XP & other rewards. Once you reach level 18, you also receive Vanguard marks. Good luck Guardians!

EDIT: Thanks to BuryingMe for noting in the comments that events recur in the same area about every 20-30 minutes & that the sky suddenly turns dark when an event is incoming.

EDIT #2: Thanks to Fiatim for posting a schedule of public events:
It looks like a work in progress but I checked the schedule for the walker in the Divide to confirm.

EDIT #3: Thanks to BB rocker for posting the following link in the comments:

EDIT #4: Thanks to Reabo for posting his brief video in the comments showing him playing a public event from start to finish.
