Citizen Science Project
The University of Kent Centre of Astrophysics and Planetary Science is looking for amateur astronomers to help with a project: Hunting Outbursting Young Stars. Dr Dirk Froebrich is running the project whose aim is long term, multi-filter optical photometric monitoring of young (age less than 10Myr), nearby (distances typically within 1kpc) star clusters or star forming regions.
