Keck Northeast Astronomy Consortium is now a member of institution of AURA

The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy has welcomed the Keck consortium as an institutional member.  AURA, a consortium of US institutions and international affiliates, operates world-class astronomical observatories in Arizona, Hawaii and Chile on behalf of NASA and the NSF.  Many KNAC faculty, including astronomers at Williams, have used AURA facilities over their careers.  We look forward to continuing this tradition with new faculty, Assistant Professor Anne Jaskot (Williams ’08) and Lecturer and Observatory Supervisor Keven Flaherty.
