Clark 125th Anniversary | Celebrating Saturn
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.
