Amateur Astronomers in the Modern Age of Discovery

From supernova to variable stars to cutting edge astronomical research, every year amateur astronomers are contributing to science and astronomy. Come learn some of the areas where you can help make important observations. Bob Stephens has been participating in amateur research since he became involved in astronomy nearly 40 years ago. In the past dozen years, he has fallen in with a bad crowd and now spends every clear night observing asteroids, contributing to professional programs, writing papers, and traveling to faraway places to observe on mountain tops or share adult beverages with professional astronomers. Come learn how to avoid this terrible fate.

Robert Stephens

"What's Up?" in this month will be presented by Steve Condrey
