Our #scienceselfie today comes from the #Physics and Astronomy department @LSU! Rory Bentley is a junior  in Physics and Astronomy and an undergraduate researcher who often spends his weekends giving lectures and observing stars at the Highland Road Park Observatory. What is he doing with that giant screen of bright objects? ⭐️ "I have a catalog of objects in a particular place in the sky that shine in x-rays (or a catalog of x-ray sources), and I'm looking through a series of visible light images of the same area, taken over several hours, for stars that have the same location as these x-ray sources that are changing in brightness in the images." ⭐️
Join Rory as he gives a public lecture on the astronomy of star clusters at the Baton Rouge Observatory this Friday night at 7:30pm!
