10 ways amateur astronomers can contribute to cutting edge science

Friday January 24, 2020

7:15 pm - 9:15 pm

Dr. Christine Corbett Moran will be our guest speaker.


Working as a professional astrophysicist Christine has had the chance to interact with many "amateurs" who know much more about certain parts of the cosmos. In this talk she will share what those things typically are, as well as some reasons an amateur might want to lend their hand to those who have the privilege to do astronomy full time. She will also share some astronomy projects currently soliciting help from "citizen scientists", their research goals, and how to start contributing today.
