The Rotunda at Lowell Observatory

Wes Lockwood, Astronomer

Wes's major research interests include the luminosity of the sun, solar and stellar activity cycles, the effects of solar variations on Earth's weather and climate, and long-term photometry of planets and satellites. He uses photoelectric photometry to measure the brightness of celestial objects with a precision achieved at few other observatories today.

Wes is a leader in promoting dark skies and also participates in Lowell's oral history project and archive preservation efforts.
