Finding the right Hook....popular film? We need your ideas!
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.
We are hear in lovely San Francisco for the second Citizen Sky conference and just like the first conference we are only a few hours in and the ideas are flying.I was chatting with Rebecca and we have come up with another good hook, MOVIES! I was at a Girl Scout camp this summer, doing a multi-station astronomy workshop and discovered that when I started talking about any constellation or star whose name was in Harry Potter the girls were much more likely to participate/interact/ask questions. In fact I had the older girls (high school/ middle school) stayed quite late just feeding me character names and I would take them to that character in the sky (or tell them which season to go looking)! So why not link Epsilon Auriga to the Twilight Series?!!!You have the eclipse (the name of one of the books)Two 'battling stars' Are you Team Jacob (the F-star) or Team Edward (the B star cloaked in the disk)So what can you think of within the Epsilon Aurigae arena OR Citizen Science in general which can be linked to the Twilight Novel/Movie series or anything else!
