Extrasolar Planet Search - From Home!
The effort to search for extrasolar planets has broadened and deepened. It now enjoys the assistance of amateur astronomers (aka "unpaid astronomers"), students and lay observers.
The Southern Vermont Astronomy Group will hold its monthly meeting at the Whiting Library in Chester, on Tuesday, March 9 at 7 p.m. SoVerA President, Claudio Veliz, will describe how researchers and amateurs are working together to find these compelling objects including a hands-on demonstration of how one particular instrument may be used with one's backyard telescope to detect these objects.
Visit http://sovera.org/events/ for a poster of the event.
