Join the NASA Night Sky Network on Tuesday, December 19 at 6:00 PM Pacific Time (9:00 PM Eastern) along with Dr. Robert Nemiroff for a tour of highlights from the Astronomy Picture of the Day archive for 2023. (That’s 8 PM CST)
Along with Jerry Bonnell, Robert Nemiroff has written, coordinated, and edited NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) since 1995 at apod.nasa.gov. The APOD archive contains the largest collection of annotated astronomical images on the internet.
About Dr. Robert Nemiroff
Dr. Robert Nemiroff is a professor of physics at Michigan Tech. He worked at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland before coming to Michigan Tech. He is perhaps best known scientifically for papers predicting, usually among others, several recovered microlensing phenomena, and papers showing, usually among others, that gamma-ray bursts were consistent with occurring at cosmological distances. He led a group that developed and deployed the first online fisheye night sky monitor, called CONCAMs, deploying later models to most major astronomical observatories. He has published as the first author and refereed for every major journal in astronomy and astrophysics. His current research interests include trying to limit attributes of our universe with distant gamma-ray bursts and investigating the use of relativistic illumination fronts to orient astronomical nebulae.
