Dr. Pamela Gay joined NSN members on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 and shared how astronomy club members can get involved in doing citizen science using data returned from a variety of NASA missions. The recording and other related resources are now available below.

There is nothing quite as awesome as a clear dark sky, but sometimes the universe just clouds you out. On those nights, CosmoQuest.org offers an online alternative for doing science. In this webinar we'll introduce you to ways to use your NSN demos in combination with CosmoQuest citizen science projects. Come learn how to introduce people to cool science they can do at home, including mapping craters on the Moon, looking for a good landing site on Mars, and exploring the asteroid Vesta.
