Nick Irving, a senior at Cienega High School, is currently interning with the National Solar Observatory (NSO).
He has been working on a project, taking data using a new infrared camera system at the solar telescope on Kitt Peak.
As a culmination for this project , Nick and NSO scientist Matt Penn will do a couple of hours of remote observing from the Cienega campus using a laptop, starting at 2:00pm.
This will help the staff at Kitt Peak work with telescopes to have remote observing capability by 2018.
This system, installed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is unique in the world, with a collaboration with Brazil in the works.
This data will hopefully used in a future research.
