July 15: Abstract

Stellar associations are made of young stars that have a common origin. Our research aims to determine whether RZ Psc is a young or old star, so we are searching for a group of young stars that may have formed at the same time and place as RZ Psc. To do so, we are examining the stars in the same field as RZ Psc using different filters and wavelengths. ­­­I will be reprocessing raw CCD images from I band data (8333 angstroms) and producing calibrated images that are feasible for photometry. Then, I will compare them to the 2MASS (Two Micron All Sky Survey) data to verify that the results are similar.
