February 2012 updates for Mr. DeCoster

Published: February 14, 2012

Richard DeCoster's student, Alex Antonow, will be presenting their research poster at an undergraduate research symposium at Loyola Marymount University.

Also, Dr. DeCoster has continued to intermittently monitor their originally discovered variable (in the IR) target with the 24inch telescope at Yerkes Observatory and with SkyNet. No significant variation in the optical has yet been seen. He has also been monitoring some of Henrietta Leavitt's cepheids in SMC for the upcoming 100th Anniversary of her 1912 paper.

The 2023 NITARP application is now available! Go here for the instructions. Applications are due by 3pm Pacific time, Monday Sep 12, 2022. (NOTE: we do not yet know if we will be permitted to travel to the AAS!)
