Meet An Astronomer

11/05/2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This Saturday, come up to Mars Hill and meet Dr. Joe Llama! Dr. Llama is a Lowell astronomer who primarily studies exoplanets and stellar astrophysics. In particular, he uses the EXtreme PREcision Spectrograph (EXPRES) on the 4.3-m Lowell Discovery Telescope (LDT) to measure the masses of Earth-sized exoplanets. He also built and commissioned the Lowell Observatory Solar Telescope (LOST), a telescope that sends sunlight into EXPRES to observe our own star in an identical way to the stars we observe at night with the LDT.

Take a peek at real-time images of planets, stars, galaxies and other celestial objects to be displayed on a large television screen outdoors with our new MallinCam. This is your opportunity to see interesting objects in the night sky, learn about an astronomer’s research, and ask questions you might have about any topic in astronomy. This event takes place every Saturday at 7pm and is included with an all-day general admission ticket.
