Description: Immerse yourself in the web of life under a symphony of starlight.
The imposing Arenal Volcano looms in the distance, mist still clinging to its slopes. The day was long and unforgettable, your camera filled with picture after picture of colorful, exotic creatures and foliage so vibrant it seems to move on its own.
Tonight we trek out again to find a dark observing spot – an easy task in the northwest corner of this amazing country – and hunt for the stars, their orderly patterns sitting in stark contrast to the verdant chaos of the jungle. Yet somehow, just as alive.
So much to absorb, you could spend a lifetime here. March 2-10 2019.
Bio: Paul Sutter received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow. He then spent three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Next-Generation Cosmic Probes at the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, and is currently an INFN Fellow in Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, and a Visiting Scholar at the Ohio State University’s Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics. He is inexplicably drawn to positions with very long titles.
