LOFAR at the AAS

LOFAR seems to be well represented at the American Astronomical Society meeting which is happening in Seattle this week. The booth has been popular thanks to a wonderful model of LOFAR station in a typical Dutch landscape.

And yesterday they made some live observations using several of the Dutch stations (and one in Germany) which you can watch in the below video.

What a wonderful demonstration of how LOFAR works.  It's been getting some really positive attention on Twitter (search for 'LOFAR #AAS217' to see for yourself.). Well done to all involved. :)
