In preparation for the upcoming NOIRLab request for 2023B observing proposals, the NASA-NSF Exoplanet Observational Research (NN-EXPLORE) program hosted a remote informational session on observing opportunities available to the US community. This session is useful to observational astronomers interested in exoplanet research and associated with US institutions.
NN-EXPLORE opportunities include access to the NEID high resolution spectrometer at the WIYN telescope in Kitt Peak, High Resolution Speckle imaging at WIYN, Gemini-North and Gemini-South, and access to radial velocity facilities in the Southern Hemisphere (SMARTS-1.5m/CHIRON and MINERVA-Australis).
The session described the resources available to users preparing proposals, the performance of the instruments, and types of observations that benefit most of these instruments.
