Clark 125th Anniversary | Celebrating Saturn

September 16 @ 8:00 pm - 8:45 pm EDT

Free

Join us for a Livestream celebration of the 125th anniversary of the historic Clark Refractor! Starting at 8:00 pm PDT, Lowell Historian Kevin Schindler will discuss the evolution of the Clark Refractor’s tracking system, from an old clock drive to Rube Goldberg-like governor to modern stepper motors.

Lowell educators at the Clark Refractor will then share live views of the planet Jupiter, which Percival Lowell and EC Slipher studied more than a century ago.

Finally, Lowell Astronomer Dr. Amanda Bosh will join Schindler to discuss this historic research of Saturn and how it compares to her modern-day studies.
