The 2022 Vatican Observatory Annual Report is now available – it opens with a letter from the Director, Br. Guy Consolmagno, outlining the events of 2022, followed by an article about how our staff is digitizing priceless historic photographic plates from the Carte du Ciel telescope.
Vatican Observatory scientists and adjunct scholars outline their research, and the life of longtime Specola member Fr. Sabino Maffeo, S.J. is celebrated on his 100th birthday. The report ends with an extensive list of outreach events done by our staff, and a list of publications and articles from the year.
