Furman Physics Professor David Moffett and sophomore Johnpaul Sleiman worked together to capture this image of comet “46P/Wirtanen” in the night sky. It is this year’s brightest comet (it’s the greenish dot in the lower left portion of the photo), and it came within seven million miles of earth on Dec. 16. The Pleiades cluster is visible in the upper portion of the image. Moffett took a series of photographs of the night sky, while Sleiman processed and stacked the images to enhance the comet’s visibility.

A new sculpture by artist Yuri Tsuzuki, “Canopy of Life,” was unveiled outside the David E. Shi Center for Sustainability on Dec. 5 during a special dedication event. The sculpture was commissioned by former Furman president David Shi in honor of his wife, Angela Halfacre, who served as director of the Shi Center from 2008 to 2016. (Photo by Jeremy Fleming)

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Furman celebrated its 25th anniversary on Nov. 29 with a special event at the Greenville Convention Center. There was much to celebrate as the organization has achieved incredible success, growing from 60-plus members in 1993 to its current size of more than 2,000 members. OLLI currently offers between 120-130 courses in each of three terms over the academic year. (Photo by Jeremy Fleming)
