Lowell Amateur Research Initiative (LARI) collaborator Stephen Leshin recently submitted an image of Barnard’s Galaxy, NGC 6822, to NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD). The beautiful image was captured in collaboration with Lowell astronomer and Deputy Director for Science Dr. Deidre Hunter as part of the LITTLE THINGS dwarf galaxy survey. APOD is featuring the image today (Fri., Feb. 8th) with a plug for LARI and LITTLE THINGS. Thanks so much to Steve and all our LARI collaborators for the amazing work they do for us!
