Title: Mapping the Universe in Search of Nearby Worlds

Just in time for the winter American Astronomical Society meeting, PBS is showing (Weds, Jan 10,  at 8pm MST on KUAT here in Tucson) a 2-hour show about black holes entitled "Black Hole Apocalypse." Mikalya Mace of the Arizona Daily star has written a nice article HERE. Two of the scientific cast are Dr Tod Lauer of NOAO, a member of the original HST "Nuker" team that showed that supermassive black holes were ubiquitous in large galaxies, and Steward Professor Feryal ​Özel, a member of the "Event Horizon Telescope" team aiming to make a high resolution (comparable to the size of the Event Horizon) radio snapshot of the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. You can read updates and information  on the EHT (data have arrived from Antarctica!) HERE and HERE. Another very good article is found HERE.

Title: Lessons in Astronomy: There's No Place Like Dome!!

On January 1, Alan Strauss of Mt Lemmon Sky Center welcomed the new year by catching a transit of the ISS in front of the Sun. Mikayla Mace of the Arizona Daily Star has a nice writeup about this photo and about outreach from Himmel Park. You can find it HERE. You can also see a CNN story HERE.
