SETI

Learn about the latest search for extraterrestrials.

We'll start with a talk focusing on one of the biggest questions facing humankind: Are We Alone? SETI projects have tried to answer this question and we'll look at how these projects have approached the technological challenge. We will also be performing real-time analysis of downloaded data from the Arecibo Radio Telescope. It's not likely, but it is just possible that during the analysis, we may be the first to discover an extraterrestrial signal of intelligent origin. This would be one of the biggest discoveries ever made and change our view of the Universe forever.

Our observing session includes the
Perseid Meteor Shower peak

Jet Stream (updates automatically to latest available image)
    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
