Clark 125th Anniversary | Imaging Jupiter

Join us for a Livestream celebration of the 125th anniversary of the historic Clark Refractor! The program runs from 9:30-10:15 pm PDT and includes: – Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler will discuss historic instruments used on the Clark for imaging: cameras, spectrograph, comet eyepiece, etc. – Lowell educators at the Clark Refractor will share live views of the planet Jupiter, which Percival Lowell and EC Slipher imaged more than a century ago. – Lowell Astronomer Dr. Phil Massey will join Schindler to compare these historic techniques to those of today, with special attention on the Lowell Discovery Telescope’s Large Monolithic Imager.
