This project aims to observe, study and describe open clusters using LCO resources. The results will be openly available for consultation in various media and formats.
The goal of the Global Sky Partners program is to inspire students, teachers and the public around the world to engage in scientific endeavors. Through this opportunity, LCO particularly aims to inspire audiences in under-represented communities and the developing world, who would not normally be able to take part in programs involving professional scientific equipment.
LCO annually provides over 1,000 hours of observing time on our telescope network to educational organizations. The Global Sky Partners are a diverse group of educators and scientists who run their own fully-supported education projects and investigations using our telescopes.
Global Sky Partners has been selected for the HundrED Global Collection 2021
Global Sky Partners is supported by the Simons Foundation and the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation
