The Europlanet Telescope Network, a collaboration between currently 16 small to medium-scale telescopes around the world, was established in June 2020 and seeks to provide access to interested observers, who can apply through a rolling call for observations to utilize its diverse facilities (see website: bit.ly/2Br5LDt). To further enhance pro-am collaboration within planetary sciences, the network additionally offers a wide range of support towards the amateur community such as pro-am and training workshops, online platforms, and the opportunity to observe at professional telescope facilities.
This splinter will further introduce to the related ExoClock project (www.exoclock.space), a platform through which amateur astronomers can support ESA's Ariel space mission through the observation of exoplanet transits.
The preliminary program will, therefore, host a series of talks covering
- the Europlanet Telescope Network,
- the Europlanet fireballs workshop series,
- comet pro-am observations and collaborations,
- Venus amateur observations from BepiColombo’s flybys to Envision,
- the ExoClock project, and
- amateur observations of exoplanets and the participation within ExoClock
