Title:Experimental Astronomy Research and Opportunities in CASPER.
Abstract: The Central Texas Astronomical Society operates the Meyer Observatory, a research
grade instrument supporting graduate research, individual research and observing, and public science
education outreach. As a CASPER partner, Baylor students and faculty have access to the observatory
for experimental research and observing. This presentation discusses the types and results of previous
and ongoing research. Opportunities for involvement in future experimental projects will be presents as well.
Mr. Campbell is a member of the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics, and Engineering Research, and represents
