        The Night Sky: Past and Present

        In this video from QUEST North Carolina, learn about the history of astronomical photography, discover what can be learned from looking at old photographic plates, and understand the role scientists and citizen scientists can play in such research. Students will learn about the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute's work to digitally catalogue the first 120 years of night sky record keeping and enable time-domain astronomy studies.
