Satellite and NEO Science
Satellites observe the Earth on a global level and take measurements to help improve our understanding of the dynamic processes at work.
Natural disasters, mass transport, ice sheet melting, ocean currents, climate change and the Earth's orientation in space are all studied using data gained from satellite technology.
Check out the following list of possible astronomy projects. The links are to websites relating to that particular subject that can be used as a starting point for research as they are not comprehensive resources by themselves. Feel free to contact us fo further assistance or scheduling scope-time.
Rock(ing)star Really Quakes (4.2 Magnitude) in Israel at the Bareket Observatory
Check out this rock(ing) star image! The 15" Astrograph, equipped with an electronic CCD camera, was in the process of acquiring an image of the Flame nebula NGC2024. The telescopic system was using a narrow-band SII filter at the time.
A 4.2 - magnitude earthquake jolted Israel's eastern border during November 24, 2007.
