  报告摘要: 

  The dry, cold and stable Antarctic atmosphere creates some of the best conditions for observing Universe. Chinese Kunlun scientific station at an altitude of 4087 m, which is on the top of Antarctic plateau, has been considered as the most promising astronomical site on the Earth. Astronomical activities at Kunlun Station have started since 2008. The first generation instruments were mainly for site testing. Large fraction of clear skies, extremely low atmospheric boundary layer and new Far-Infrared windows have been identified. In 2011, the Antarctic Survey Telescope (AST3) with an aperture of 500 mm, was operated at Kunlun Station for wide—field photometry. In 2014, the second AST3 joined in the Antarctic survey. Observations of AST3 have effectively contributed to researches of ExoPlanets, Variable Stars, Supernovas, Galaxies and Cosmic Evolution. In 2017, AST3-2 successfully detected the optical counterpart of GW170817, just a day after its detection by LIGO.
