The Burke-Gaffney Observatory is a fully robotic optical astronomical observatory. It is the world's first observatory to interact with its observers entirely using social media platforms (Twitter and Facebook).
It has a flexible and easy-to-use interface that allows observers to obtain astronomical images of objects of their choice in a fully-automatic way.
