Planets

Coordinator: Emmanuel (Manos) I. Kardasis

The Working Group deals with systematic observations of the planets of the Solar system. The observations are archived and used to study the planetary atmosphere dynamics. Our works are presented in national (Greek) and international conferences along with papers published in scientific journals. An important activity of the section is to promote professional-amateur collaborations and engage amateurs to the planetary imaging. Additionally, the planets of the Solar system are an indispensable part during our outreach events, both as part of the presentations and of the public viewing.
