Join us for a Livestream celebration of the 125th anniversary of the historic Clark Refractor! The program runs from 9:30-10:15 pm PDT and includes: Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler will discuss ways the Clark dome has been rotated through the years, including on pontoons in a trough of saltwater! Lowell educators at the Clark Refractor will share live views of the star Beta Scorpii, the object that Dr. VM Slipher studied more than a century ago in proving the existence of interstellar gas. Lowell Astronomer Dr. Kyler Kuehn will join Schindler to discuss the relevance of Slipher’s discoveries to modern-day research, particularly Kuehn’s work with the Dark Energy Survey and the Southern Stellar Stream Spectroscopic Survey.
