Planetary and exoplanetary Astronomy Lunch Seminar for 2019-10-16

Series: Planetary and exoplanetary Astronomy Lunch Seminar
Date: Wednesday 16-Oct-2019
Time: 14:00-15:00
Location: ATL 1250
Speaker: Hannah Jang-Condell (University of Wyoming)
Title: Exoplanet Science at the University of Wyoming

The University of Wyoming is home to the 2.3-m Wyoming Infrared Observatory (WIRO) and the 0.6-m Red Buttes Observatory (RBO). In this talk I will discuss some of the research projects on exoplanet science that are carried out on these facilities. Much of our observational efforts focus on follow-up of exoplanet candidates discovered by TESS. I will also discuss new instrumentation being built that will enable new observational capabilities at WIRO for exoplanet discovery and characterization.
