Hands-On LCOGT Science at the AAS Meeting!

LCOGT scientists are attending the winter 2013 meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Long Beach, CA. In addition to several poster and oral presentations, LCOGT will be hosting a booth in the conference hall all week. Members of our supernovae, exoplanet, and solar system science teams will be there to talk about their science along with our public outreach group who will be demonstrating the cool interactive education projects available through our website. We will also be showing how to explore our new imaging and photometry archives as well as exhibiting some of the hardware from the 1-meter telescopes.

It's a very exciting time at LCOGT as we are busy commissioning our brand new telescopes in Texas and Chile and pressing ahead with deploying at our South Africa site. Stop by our booth and get a first-hand look at the hardware and software that unites all our facilities into a single, unique resource for observational astronomy.

Join our “Astro-Raffle” and suggest a target for the new telescopes – if your target is chosen, we'll schedule observations of it live during the conference!

Come along and meet the team!
