The Era of global Astronomy and how anyone/anywhere can get involved

Dr Sara Webb

Swinburne University of Technology

We live in an exciting era of Astronomy where data far outweighs astronomers, and the discoveries to be made are almost limitless. In this presentation I will give an overview of the transient universe and some of the most unique discoveries assisted by Amateur astronomers and citizen scientists. I'll also highlight how you can get involved in assisting current research and even help in the hunt for elusive cosmic events!
