AAS-Nova has a great article on Ward Howard’s EvryFlare survey. His survey combines long-term high-cadence Evryscope observations with short-term, high-precision TESS data to measure extreme flare rates and rotation rates for cool stars, including some of the highest-priority TESS planet-search targets.
We are excited to announce that Jeff Ratzloff, the Evryscope mechanical designer and leader of our compact-objects and fast-transiting-exoplanets programs, has been selected to receive the 2020 Dean’s Distinguished Dissertation Award in the area of Mathematics, Physical Sciences & Engineering. The Dean’s Distinguished Dissertation Award recognizes the highest level of graduate student scholarship at UNC Chapel Hill; there is one award in physical sciences and mathematics each year.
The Evryscope team are presenting new surveys and results @ AAS 2020:
