The COSETI Observatory

  • Search Strategy

    • Targeted Star Search only.
      • An “All Sky Survey” doesn’t make much sense at optical wavelengths as there are too many pixels to search in the celestial sphere.
    • Look at the same stars that are the subject of the Microwave Targeted Search.
      • 1,000 solar-type stars out to a distance of about 100 light years.
