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 us online as Dr. Brian Kloppenborg, AAVSO's executive director, 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.
