The Unistellar community invites you to a unique and fascinating experience! On October 16th, the launch window for NASA’s Lucy Mission — the first ever mission to the Trojan asteroids — will begin. Discover not only about the journey to these “time capsules from the birth of our Solar System,” but also about how, as a citizen astronomer, you can directly contribute to Lucy’s stellar adventure.
Through positive detections of three different Trojan asteroids, the Unistellar community has already helped Lucy get a better understanding of its targets. In the coming months, eVscope and eQuinox owners from across the globe will have opportunities to continue to contribute to this groundbreaking journey. Scroll down the page to view our calendar of events, learn more about asteroids, and stay tuned for more news!
