Virtual VLBA Tour

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm MST

Free

Lying scattered across North America, from Hawaii to the Virgin Islands, are ten radio antennas that, when their data is combined together, create one continent-sized telescope called the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). Built from 1986 to 1993, the VLBA has unmatched pinpoint accuracy that allows astronomers to measure the positions and distances of cosmic objects to determine their masses, makeup and movement.

Join us for a virtual tour to learn more about the VLBA and the work that it does. More details to come!

This virtual tour will take place on Saturday, February 27, 2021, 1-2 PM MST [Mountain Standard Time, UTC/GMT -7].

This event will take place on Zoom. Registration is required.
