GUEST SPEAKER: John O’Meara, Chief Scientist, W. M. Keck Observatory
VIRTUAL ASTRONOMY TALK: You’ve seen the discoveries, but how are they made? In this presentation, we follow the process of Keck Observatory’s science, from proposal to publication. Along the way, we’ll learn how our Hawaii staff prepares the Keck I and Keck II telescopes, configures the instruments, and supports astronomers with their observations from dusk to dawn. Dr. O’Meara will also share how Keck Observatory continues to enable world-class science during COVID-19.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
