Join the NASA Night Sky Network on Tuesday, December 17 at 6:00pm Pacific / 9:00pm Eastern when Robert Nemiroff will showcase the best of the Astronomy Picture of the Day for 2019.  Along with Jerry Bonnell, Robert Nemiroff has written, coordinated, and edited NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) since 1995.  The APOD archive contains the largest collection of annotated astronomical images on the internet.  

You can find registration links and more information on the webinar resource page (NSN login required).

About Robert Nemiroff
Dr. Robert Nemiroff is a professor of physics at Michigan Tech.  He worked at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland before coming to Michigan Tech. He is perhaps best known scientifically for papers predicting, usually among others, several recovered microlensing phenomena, and papers showing, usually among others, that gamma-ray bursts were consistent with occurring at cosmological distances. He led a group that developed and deployed the first online fisheye night sky monitor, called CONCAMs, deploying later models to most major astronomical observatories. He has published as first author and refereed for every major journal in astronomy and astrophysics. His current research interests include trying to limit attributes of our universe with distant gamma-ray bursts, and investigating the use of relativistic illumination fronts to orient astronomical nebulae.

In 1995, Dr. Nemiroff co-created the Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) with main NASA website at http://apod.nasa.gov/.  If you are a fan of APOD, please consider joining the Friends of APOD at http://friendsofapod.org/.

In 1999, he co-created the Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL) open repository. Housed at MTU and located online at http://ascl.net/, the ASCL now lists over 1000 codes and promotes greater research transparency. ASCL is indexed by ADS, making participating astrophysics codes easier to locate and cite.
