Clemson Astro Group students participate in the Clemson Area Amateur Astronomer's (CAAA) Summer Solstice party at the Dixon Lomax observing site in Long Creek, SC. Pictured left to right are: Molly (an Art student at Clemson), and from the Astro Group, Bethany Johns, Adria Updike, Keith Davis, Kirin Garimella, Brian Donehew, Autumn Homewood, and Mark Theiling.

Clemson Astro Group professor Dieter Hartmann and his students Kirin Garimella, Autumn Homewood and Adria Updike visit Dan Reichart's group at UNC Chapel Hill as part of the FUN (Follow-Up Network) collaboration which involves the observatories PROMPT, SOAR, SARA and the telescopes of NOAO.

Prof. Dieter Hartmann inspects the Nebra Disk, a 3600-year-old disk depicting bodies seen in the night sky. Prof. Hartmann and Clemson students Stephanie Cortes and Simon Schuler were fortunate enough to have a private viewing of this ancient astronomical artifact while on a trip to Germany in the summer of 2004. More information about the disk can be found here.
