    Astro Talk Friday 9.25.15


    Aloha all,

    We will be holding a public talk this Friday September 25th at 6:30 pm at the Maui IfA in Pukalani (below Longs Drug Store). 
    Our own Sifan Kahale will be talking about ” Pan-STARRS Operations Using Avatars In The Virtual World”.

    “I will spend an enjoyable hour “exposing” the other half of our audience that attends our public talks:  the avatars in the virtual worlds like Second Life.  Also, using virtual models of the Pan-STARRS observatories, I will go through the process of preparing our observatories for nightly operations and demonstrate how we find asteroids and near-Earth objects (NEOs).”

    For more information please email me or go to:

    Live streaming will be available at:
