Also, here is a re-post for help from one of our members

Hello everyone!

Last year or so, the Astronomy club at Glendale Community College had formed a sub-group to work towards building a Radio Telescope and conducting Radio Astronomy at the main campus.

While our progress has been slow due to us being students and needing to analyze what it is that we wish to do, we are planning to start asking around for experts, asking about experiences with radio astronomy, as well as asking what we should attempt to observe.

If you happen to have the answers to those three types of questions we are exploring, I would love to gather those answers and present them to the group at our next meeting in two weeks.

If you do not, I would still love to invite you to visit our group or the ASTRO club’s Stargazing events on March 22nd and April 5th at the GCC North Campus at 7PM.

Hope 2019 has been good to all of you so far.

Here is a 15 minute video I created to help summarize the group’s discussions up to yesterday’s meeting as well as present a framework for us to work on as the Spring semester continues.
