Mission Statement

Advancing our understanding of the universe through research and education with our unique global telescope network.

Description

Founded in 2005, LCOGT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created in the spirit of scientific exploration and discovery. LCOGT is at the forefront of astronomical research by providing real-time viewing through a worldwide network of telescopes that function in concert as one instrument, thereby offering a consistently observable sky - a never ending night giving scientists, educators, and the general public the unique ability to view and investigate astronomical phenomena quickly and take immediate observations, or monitor a star for days on end to watch it pulsate and change. This powerful network currently contains 18 deployed telescopes at 6 sites - Chile, Australia, South Africa, Maui, HI, Texas, and Tenerife. This network will grow to 21 telescopes at 8 sites when progress is completed in Israel and China in the future. These collaborator-sites fulfill both LCOGT’s scientific goal to revolutionize time domain astronomy research; and it’s educational goal to make astronomy accessible to everyone and inspire people of all ages to become involved in the excitement of scientific discovery.
