|Title:||Science with MeerLICHT|
|Date:||Thursday, 14 April 2016|
|Time:||11:00 - 12:00|
|Venue:||1896 Building (SAAO)|
MeerLICHT is a 65cm optical telescope that will operate from Sutherland starting 2017. The telescope will point wherever the MeerKAT radio array is pointing and will observe in 5 filters with a 1 minute cadence. The primary goal of the project is full exploitation of radio transient science, with before, during and after snapshots of any radio transient objects. However, a wealth of optical data will be generated and I will discuss observing strategy and potential ancillary science from these data.
