Global Sky Partners

LCO launched the Global Sky Partners program in 2017 with the goal of inspiring students, teachers and the public around the world to engage in astronomy and science endeavors. 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.
