Hunting Outbursting Young Stars

Dirk Froebrich University of Kent

A chance for the society’s imagers to take part in a citizen science project.

Hunting Outbursting Young Stars with the Centre of Astrophysics and Planetary Science (HOYS-CAPS). Amateur astronomers from the UK and Europe, supported by professional observatories take images of objects on their target list and submit these images for inclusion in the HOYS-CAPS database. This will allow participants to plot and study light-curves of any star imaged by the project.

During the talk Dirk will explain how more amateurs can be revruited fot the task.
