Lick Observatory is a vibrant research facility and the primary base for the University of California’s astronomy education and public outreach efforts. Lick is also used to develop new technologies, such as laser guide star adaptive optics, that produce very clear images of celestial objects. This is your chance to learn about the exciting research and other activities being completed at Lick. This program is presented by Alex Filippenko, one of the world's most frequently cited astronomers.
