It's Astro-April at Citizen Sky!

Citizen Sky is now officially permanent part of the AAVSO. In the coming weeks we will be moving additional content to the AAVSO site and freezing this site as an archive of the 1st three years of the project. Please visit the new landing page for future updates.

Recordings for all Astro-April online talks have been posted below!

To celebrate the achievements of the Citizen Sky Project and to introduce our participants to the wider world of astronomy, we planned a month-long celebration called Astro-April, which took place in April of 2012.  We scheduled webinars throughout the month on various variable star topics. We also gave out many awards and prizes throughout the month.

The schedule of talks is listed below.  Links to recordings of each talk are included in the table.

The videos are in .wmv format, which can be viewed natively with Windows. If you are using MacOS X, please download and install Flip4Mac_WMV to view the videos.
