This Saturday, Nov. 19, Andrew Lowe will present a free web-based seminar titled “Using the Internet to discover Asteroids.” The seminar, which is a public service of RAS (Remote Astronomical Society) Observatory, will start at noon MST.

Space is limited, so the RAS Observatory urges interested parties to sign-up quickly to guarantee their seat.

This is the second web seminar offered by RAS Observatory. “Along with this series of seminars,” says Martin Nicholson, director of the RAS Observatory, “the RAS Observatory is also offering additional programs to provide amateur astronomers with similar remote observing facilities currently only enjoyed by professional astronomers.”

The seminar is presented in conjunction with Ivocalize.com, (www.ivocalize.com) a web conference hosting service and will last approximately 1 hour.
