- Jeff Kissel Ph.D, Controls Engineer at the Hanford Laser Interferometer Gravity-wave Observatory (LIGO)
- Dr. Michael Allen, Senior Instructor of Physics and Astronomy, Washington State University

This list is not the entire body of presenters for this year - we are working to add a few more to the lineup. See the Speakers Program page for information and updates.
Observers Program for 2015
It's been updated for 2015, with a new list of objects added to the lists from previous years. Krieg and Tom have provided a theme for this year: "Near, Far, and Faint Fuzzies in a Faint Fuzzy". The list includes finding some stars that are known to host exoplanets; digging some Abell galaxy clusters in Pegasus, Perseus and Andromeda; and challenging you to locate some of the H-III regions in M33, the Triangulum Galaxy. And, as always, you're welcome to work on the Observers Program lists from previous years and still be able to earn your pin. More info, and copies of the lists, are on the Observers Program page.
