LISTEN to the PODCAST of this episode!
Join us this FRIDAY, JUNE 6, at 9pm ET, for a special EVENT HORIZON chat with iTelescope’s PETER LAKE!
As many of our listeners know, Peter is an iTelescope science director and handles their educational development and social outreach. He also happens to have recently acquired this year’s very first amateur image of comet 67P/CG – the target of ESA’s Rosetta mission! Peter will discuss the challenges of acquiring such an image; how he and others are sharing this and similar data through pro-am collaborations like the PACA Project; and how YOU can participate. Peter will also talk about the upcoming near-planet pass of comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring with Mars and how students are assisting the search for near-Earth asteroids!
* Peter and our hosts will be available to answer listeners’ imaging and pro-am collaboration questions, via the AFM chatroom, during the live presentation at 9pm.
