Star Tracking with Telescope Array Fluorescence Detectors to Investigate Atmospheric Effects on Starlight Signal Intensity Decay

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

I am working with Dr. Douglas Bergman and the Cosmic Ray Group at the University of Utah Department of Physics and Astronomy. We are computationally tracking stars across the sky using data from Telescope Array, a cosmic ray detector in Delta, UT. We are using the program to extract starlight intensity decay data from many stars. We are most interested in the trends that these intensities follow as stars move toward the horizon, which we hypothesize will depend on atmospheric aerosols.
