Stephan’s Quintet image captured by NAU student using the DCT. 

Stephan’s Quintet is a tight visual grouping of five galaxies, four of which are at the same distance (about 300 million light-years). The fifth (at left) has a considerably smaller redshift and is not physically associated with the other four, but just seen in foreground at a distance of 40 million light-years. 

This image was taken and processed by NAU Observational Astronomy students taught by Lowell astronomer Phil Massey. This image was produced by then junior astronomy major Brian Barandi in November 2013. (Credit: Barandi/NAU/Lowell Obs./NSF

jjthebohemian wanted to know:
Hello!! I haven't been accepted yet, but NAU is my 1st choice! I had some clunker grades sophomore and junior year, so hopefully that doesn't rule me out. I already know that I want to live in Gabaldon, but with the en suite bathrooms, is it difficult to get in? I also like to cook. How are the community kitchens in the dorms? Thanks!!

The community kitchens are small, basic kitchens with stoves, microwave, and oven. Good luck getting in :)

  • Going through the lava caves. 
  • Making the ridiculously long drive down to Prescott for the closest In-N-Out.
  • Tequila Sunrise (I was never old enough. Wah.)
  • Visiting Sedona with friends. 
  • Double majoring in social work (I might as well have for all the classes I took towards my minor)
  • Enjoying the ski lift at Snowbowl. 
  • Spending a summer in Flag. 
  • Touring Riordan Mansion. 
  • Getting a library card for Flagstaff City Library. 
  • Checking out Lockett Meadow in person. 
  • Witnessing the Pine Cone Drop
  • Shopping at the community farmer’s market. 
  • Taking Dick Skeen’s 316 (my friend wrote on her class evaluation ‘this class was great and I want more Dick!’)
  • Hiking Mount Humphreys.
  • Creating a snowman (and don’t ask me how this didn’t happen…)
  • Attending Relay for Life
  • Being a part of the NAU Student Education Team.
  • Spending time at Wheeler Park.
