evenings with astronomers

Keck Observatory donors provide crucial philanthropic support that allows us to fulfill our strategic goals. Donors enjoy special access to Keck Observatory advancement programs including our signature Evenings with Astronomers events, a premier lecture series, which are generously sponsored by Rob and Terry Ryan. Donors who give at the $500 level are invited to these events between January and April on the Big Island.

Through this series we are raising money for a Keck Cosmic Reionization Mapper which will enable new discoveries in the distant universe. The instrument is a highly sensitive, flexible, integral field spectrograph operating at the extreme red end of the visible spectrum. You can read more about the Keck Cosmic Reionization Mapper here.
