Stargazing Working with a radio telescope

  1. Jul 14, 2004 #1
    Through my school, I'll be working with a radio telescope. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas or suggestions of cool things that I could research or observe with the radio telescope. Thanks!

    You could look at solar flares...I did a little work with them using a former cable tv dish while at undergrad. However, that was only because it was the only thing available on campus (the department was really small and underfunded) and my interests lie elsewhere. Our setup was bad and I spent most of the time simply trying to interpret data, let alone analyzing solar flare data.

    Listen to Jupiter. You will be impressed!
