UrFU Lyceum student wins silver in astronomy competition
Held from November 23 to December 2 in Tomohon, Indonesia, the competition brought together student teams from across Indonesia, Pakistan, Korea, China, Kazakhstan and Russia to demonstrate their knowledge of astronomy. This year's Russian team was led by Elsukov and three students from Yakutsk.
Throughout the week-long competition, student teams were charged to solve such astronomical challenges as calculating the period of Jupiter's satellites, compiling charts and estimating the magnitudes of several stars. Practical challenges included mounting a removable solar filter, conducting observations of the sun throughout the day and observations of Jupiter and its satellites.
The Asian-Pacific Astronomy Olympiad is put on each year by the Astronomical Society. It is open to student participants throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.
