The Liverpool Telescope is a 2.0 metre unmanned fully robotic
telescope at the Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos on the
Canary island of La Palma. It is owned and operated by Liverpool
John Moores University, with financial support from STFC.

PATT & JMU TAC Semester 2019A Calls for Proposals
The Liverpool Telescope TAC has issued Calls for Proposals from the PATT and JMU TACs for observations beginning in Semester 2019A, which runs from 1st January 2019 to 31 August 2019 inclusive. The deadline for submission of proposals to both PATT and JMU is 23:59 GMT on Tuesday 9th October 2018. There are 275 hours available for PATT, and 243 for JMU. Both TACS are also allowing an extra 90 hours for Priority C (backup) time. [more details]
Liverpool Telescope helps find source of high energy neutrinos
The Liverpool Telescope contributed to the multiwavelength follow-up campaign of the blazar TXS 0506+056, published last month in Science (IceCube Collaboration, Science, 2018, 361, 1378: arXiv:1807.08816). The campaign was prompted by the detection on 22 September 2017 of a neutrino with an energy of ~290 tera electron volts, by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole. The observatory consists of thousands of sensors buried in a cubic kilometre of Antarctic ice, designed to detect the Cherenkov radiation from charged particles.
