Students gathered information from observations
This was information about our own observations of Neptune and Pluto.
They were scheduled to take place the week of March 3 and marked a historic
first with the HST dedicated to K-12 research. These were YOUR observations.
The data from these observations
was seen for the first time ever on the live television broadcast on March
Also you should know that on February 28 and 29, Planet Advocate Reta
Beebe was busy with observations of Jupiter.

Students interpreted results of observations
Interpreting the scientific results of our observations took place in
April. This involved K-12 students doing real science having used one
of the world's foremost science tools.
Marc Buie offered students the opportunity to look
over his shoulder as he analyzed our Pluto images!
