Mr. Aziz Ettahar Kaeouach is an amateur astronomer with a deep fascination for space and cosmic phenomena, and a keen interest in astrophotography. In addition to his personal passion for astronomy, Mr. Kaeouach has been involved in several projects related to rehabilitating and automating astronomical observatories. In 2020, he played a role in rehabilitating and automating the Al Akhawayn Astronomical Observatory (AAO), and in July 2021, he was involved in the High Atlas Observatory (HAO) project. Both observatories offer various programs and projects that aim to promote and popularize astronomy among students, the general public, and astronomy enthusiasts during astronomical events.

Dr. Hee-Jae Lee received his Ph.D. in Astronomy and Space Science from Chung-Buk National University, Republic of Korea. He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute. His research focuses on characterizing the physical properties of asteroids by conducting photometric and spectroscopic observations using ground-based facilities. He has also expanded his research field to the astrometry of asteroids for the discovery of new asteroids and the tracking of their orbits.

Prof. Jonathan Makela is a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on multi-technique remote sensing of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, studying its behavior during quiet and stormy periods. His group develops and deploys various sensors to analyze datasets, aiming to understand the electrodynamics of instability processes in the ionosphere and the coupling between the neutral atmosphere and electrified plasma. Their algorithms support NASA’s Ionospheric Connection Explorer mission, exploring the atmosphere's connection to near-space. His work impacts space weather forecasting, hazard warnings, sensing techniques, electrical grid fortification, and our understanding of space plasma physics.
