Event Date: 
Monday, October 26, 2020 - 20:30 to 22:00 EDT

Mars through the eyes of the RASC: The visual evidence from past oppositions.

RASC History Committee

This session will introduce the surviving images recording views of Mars by Society members at past oppositions. The material circumstances of the images (astronomical media and instruments used), and the non-observational factors possibly influencing what was seen at the eyepiece will be discussed. What can a considered perspective on past visions of the red planet teach us about our own observations at this opposition?

This talk will be presented by committee member Randall Rosenfeld.
