AAVSO

AAVSO

The American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) coordinates, collectes, evaluates and publishes  variable star observations made largely by amateur astronomers and makes the records available to professional astronomers, researchers, and educators. These records establish light curves depicting the variation in brightness of a starover time.

Searchlight Observatory Network

LSU

Searchlight Observatory Network

The Searchlight Observatory Network (SON) leads a worldwide campaign for doing ultra-sensitive polarimetry. Using novel instrumentation SON has a network of telescopes that, while of modest aperture, now have unique capabilities to do 1e-5 broadband polarimetry. With this new capability we are able to detect extrasolar planets that are otherwise invisible and can begin to study their atmospheres.
