My good friend Rik Hill of the Catalina Sky Survey, one of the great observing projects in the history of astronomy, writes that the survey has a job opening. Part of the University of Arizona, the survey team uses three telescopes to discover asteroids and comets, as well as search for near-Earth objects that could intersect our orbit. The position of observer is based in Tucson, Arizona.
“This is a job well suited to amateur astronomers,” said Rik, part of the Catalina team, “as they know what observing all night is like. We have several former amateur astronomers in our ranks now.”
Here’s more information on the job.
