NSN Members joined three representatives of the Astronomy in Chile Ambassadors Program on Tuesday, October 20th.

Our guest speakers spoke about the incredible array of professional telescopes high in the Chilean desert. The same factors that draw professionals to the area also make Chile a great place for amateur astronomers to learn about the southern skies. See what's up in astronomy's most inviting country and how you can be a part of it.

Our guest speakers:
  • Dr. Brian Koberlin, Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Peter Detterline, Boyertown Planetarium
  • Vivian White, Astronomical Society of the Pacific
