April promises to be a great month for the Citizen Sky Project!
We are using the month of April to celebrate the Citizen Sky Project and to learn a little more about astronomy outside of Citizen Sky. Astro-April will be packed with a series of webinars, prizes and awards. Also, don't forget that there is a special AAVSO Membership sale going on to add the festivities!
We are certainly off to a good start! The first webinar in the series was given April 4th by Robert Naeye, Editor in Chief of Sky & Telescope Magazine, and went very well. We will be posting a recording of this and future webinars online. Many thanks to Bob for participating in Astro-April.Read more
I thought I would issue a plug for a talk I'm giving shortly. On this Thursday, July 28 at 8:00 PM I will be presenting a talk on epsilon Auriage and Citizen Science at Nebraska Nature and Visitor's Center during the Platte Valley Astronomical Observers's monthly meeting. Weather permitting, we'll also have an observing session afterward. So, if you happen to be somewhere nearby we'd be happy to have you attend.
I am happy to announce a new feature on the Citizen Sky website!
Participants can now create and search event listings. This feature can be found under the "Communicate" tab on the homepage. Events can be searched for by date, country, state, or event title. Feel free to use this feature to post any Citizen Sky or Astronomy related public events!Read more
