Arman Aznavorian is a first-year student in MRC working on The Ultraviolet Halos of Nearby Galaxies with his Research Mentor Edmund Hodges-Kluck, an Assistant Research Scientist in the Astronomy Department. For his project he visited Kitt Peak National Observatory February 19th to the 24th. "The trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," recalls Arman. "When I accepted my sponsor's offer to join the project, I was aware of the possibility that he would be able to reserve time at Kitt Peak National Observatory and bring me along. While this was not the reason I decided to join the project, it certainly interested me. Since I was a child, I have enjoyed amateur astronomy. Some of my fondest memories from childhood were spent looking through the eyepiece of a humble 10-inch telescope with my father. While our telescope met our needs, it certainly belonged to the minor league of telescopes. I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to see, let alone use a major league telescope. So, when my research sponsor told me that he had been able to reserve a 1.4-m telescope at Kitt Peak and offered to bring me with him, I did not need to think twice about my answer. Thank you to all the staff members of MRC for making it possible for me to fulfill this childhood dream!"
