Urban stargazers face a host of challenges when turning their attention skyward: Limited horizons, the blight of light pollution, suspicious neighbors—even the rules of the local homeowners association! What's an aspiring citizen scientist to do? Answer: Science! With a little ingenuity, it's possible to observe even in the brightest inner-city environment.
Join executive director Dr. Brian Kloppenborg via Zoom (registration required) as he shares his experience with observing from urban environments, and provides advice and techniques for making the experience more productive.
In true How-To fashion, the presentation will be followed by an extended interactive Q&A, allowing time to ask Dr. Kloppenborg questions about all things urban observing. | Webinar, December 2 at 2pm EST.
Forum Denizens: A polite reminder that the urban observing webinar will be held this coming Saturday at 2pm EST. Register now to hear Brian Kloppenborg's advice on skywatching from within city limits. Even the brightest skyglow and crowded horizons can still offer up celestial delights. We hope you can join us!
