    - Board members- do not register. Contact me directly via email or call.


    About the Hosts:

    Rich Russin

    I am the ATM Coordinator for the Club. I consider myself an advocational astronomer with a heavy interest in astronomy related gear. I started with the club in 2005 and was president in 2009. My primary interests include astro equipment, eclipses, meteorites, and cultural astronomy, especially in the American Southwest. 

    Matthew Peters

    My wife and I are originally from Ohio and moved to Gainesville about 6 years ago. While I do not have any formal or professional ties to astronomy, all things space/spaceflight have been a long enduring love of mine.  Professionally I work in the hospitality industry where I attended culinary school and worked my way up to serve as the Executive Chef at a couple places along the way, with a focus on catering and healthcare.  I currently serve as the Retail and Events Manager at The Village at Gainesville.  As a relative newbie to the hobby I am eager to learn from more "seasoned" members (couldn't resist a good pun) about where the hobby and club have been and actively participate in where it is going.

    Speaker: Dr. Terry Oswalt, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

    Title: White Dwarfs - Prospecting in the Stellar Graveyard

    Abstract:

    The bright star Sirius has a faint companion star, about the mass of the sun, but more like a planet in size. Such stars, called white dwarfs, are many thousands of times denser than matter which can be studied in terrestrial laboratories. Astrophysicists know white dwarfs are the fate of nearly all existing stars. They are a class of dying stars that no longer can generate energy, but merely cooling slowly to invisibility. Thus, the oldest white dwarfs are the remains of the first generation of stars in the solar neighborhood. Dr. Oswalt will discuss the life cycle of stars, his studies of the white dwarf stars and the constraints these results place on the age of the Galaxy and Universe.

    About the Speaker:

    Dr. Terry D. Oswalt is Professor and Associate Dean in the College of Arts & Sciences at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He earned his Ph.D. in Astronomy at The Ohio State University specializing in studies of binary star systems, late stages of stellar evolution, minor planets, and comets. Oswalt teaches physics and astronomy courses at all levels while continuing his primary research interests in stellar astrophysics.

    Oswalt is the founding Chairman of the Southeast Association for Research in Astronomy, a consortium of 15 institutions that operate remote-access telescopes at Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tucson, Arizona, Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory in Chile, and Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos in the Canary Islands. He also has been director of the SARA summer internship program, which brought undergraduate students from around the U.S. to do research at the SARA facility at Kitt Peak each summer for 18 years. In recognition of his astronomical research and work in founding the SARA consortium, Dr. Oswalt was named the 2010 Florida Academy of Science Medalist. He is a member of the International Astronomical Union, Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society, Fellow of the American Astronomical Society and Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society (UK).

    For over 20 years, Dr. Oswalt has been a Harlow Shapley lecturer for the American Astronomical Society and Councilor of the Physics and Astronomy Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research. In addition to having served on numerous governmental advisory committees, he has been a program officer for Stellar Astronomy & Astrophysics at the National Science Foundation. Dr. Oswalt has published over 250 scientific articles and has edited nine books, the most recent of which is a six-volume series of astronomy reference books “Planets, Stars & Stellar Systems.”

    Speaker:  Corin Marasco, UF

    Title: Giant Stars and How We Study Them

    Abstract: 

    Giant stars are unimaginably large, making them some of the most luminous and impressive objects in the galaxy. They are so bright that when we look up into the night sky, you can see hundreds of these stellar giants with your naked eye, despite them being relatively rare. I will give an overview of a star’s life cycle to show how they become giants, and I’ll explain asteroseismology, which is a newer method we are using to determine a giant star’s age, size, composition, and more. I will also discuss different types of giants and why they’re important, with a focus on yellow supergiants, the rarest type of star. Researching these giant stars is not only fun, but essential for understanding our universe, from things as small as exoplanets to as large as galaxies.

    About the Speaker:

    Corin was born in Virginia and grew up about an hour outside of Atlanta, GA. She first fell in love with observational astronomy when she worked on a research project studying AGN at Georgia State University's Perimeter College. She then went to Georgia Tech for her undergrad, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics with an Astrophysics Concentration.

    Research Interests:

    Her research interests lie in high-energy and stellar astrophysics. Her undergraduate research aimed to better understand yellow supergiants by studying a population of them to look for trends among their characteristics. She has also interned at NASA GSFC and MSFC, where sh worked on projects that used observations of high-energy sources to explore ways to more accurately interpret data from NASA's X-ray telescopes (primary NuSTAR and Chandra). She is now interested in pursuing similar research, especially studying stellar populations and continuing to work with X-ray data.

    Areas of Study:
    • Observational Astronomy
    • X-ray Astrophysics
    • Stellar Populations

    Speaker:  Dr. Hal McAlister

    Title: Astronomical Interferometry at Mount Wilson

    Abstract:  TBD

    About the Speaker:

    Hal received a B.A. in physics in 1971 from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, then his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in astronomy in 1974 and 1975 from the University of Virginia. In 1977 Hal joined the faculty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy as an assistant professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta. Promotions to associate professor, full professor and designation as a Regents Professor came in 1982, 1987, and 1998. He retired from his faculty position as Regents Professor Emeritus in 2011.  At Georgia State University he founded the Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy (CHARA) in 1983 and served as its director until he retired in 2015. He led the team that turned a dream for an astronomical interferometer into the reality of the CHARA Array, currently producing the world's highest resolution images of the surfaces and close environs of stars. During 2002–2014 he also served pro-bono as CEO of the Mount Wilson Institute and Director of Mount Wilson Observatory, the site of the CHARA Array. He has authored or co-authored some 450 scientific papers in the areas of binary star speckle interferometry and long-baseline optical/near-infrared interferometry.

    Awards:

    UTC honored Hal as its commencement speaker in 2001 and as its Distinguished Alumnus for 2008. GSU designated him as its Alumni Distinguished Professor for 1996, its Doctoral Hooding Ceremony speaker for 2010, and as a Centennial Speaker for 2013. Hal's other awards include the 2007 Maria and Eric Muhlmann Award of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and the Michelson Lifetime Achievement Award sponsored by Lowell Observatory and the Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur in 2017. Hal and Susan McAlister were jointly awarded the Double Star Award of the Los Angeles Astronomical Society in 2009 and the Clifford W. Holmes Award of the RTMC Astronomy Expo in 2010 for their efforts on behalf of Mount Wilson during the 2009 Station Fire. ​Citing his "pioneering work in high angular resolution astronomy including the discovery of thousands of visual binary stars; for founding the GSU Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy; and for a decade of leadership of the historic Mount Wilson Observatory," Hal was designated as a Fellow of the American Astronomical Society in January 2022.

    Research Interests:

    Hal had a two-year postdoctoral research associateship at the Kitt Peak National Observatory during which he became deeply involved in optimizing the then very new technique of speckle interferometry for high angular resolution studies of binary star systems. That method is now the predominant means for measuring orbital motions of resolved binary star systems.
