NSAS Seminar Series

Our speaker this month is Peter Nosworthy, NSAS member, who will be presenting on occultations and amateur observing. Peter will describe techniques he has successfully applied to detect and measure solar systems objects, helping to refine our scientific knowledge. Using this technique, coordinated teams of amateur observers can achieve results surpassing professional observatories and even space-based telescopes. Come and hear about how amateur observers can make important contributions and how you can even get started !
