Special Astronomical Events

On the Tuesday evening of November 6, 2007, the students of Professor Kenyon’s Astronomy 11 lab class sat at their computer terminals in ST-2 (the Astronomy Lab) on the Rocklin campus and proceeded to open the dome of our Robotic Observatory on the Grass Valley campus. Their objective was to track the telescope to Comet Holmes, use the sophisticated camera system to take a few images, and then create a final image using some image processing software.
