Last week Thursday, we held our November edition of our monthly hangout. At our hangout was Dan Durda, astrophysicist and astroartist and Johannes Stubler will be talking about GAM.
Dan took some time from his asteroid research to chat with us about his art. Art has always been part of his life, but what he likes to do is help people understand science through pictures, he says ”It’s fun for me to work in both worlds, to help visualize the products of myself and colleagues as well.” In his talk with host Mike Simmons, he shares his thoughts about some of his work.
Johannes Stubler from Austria dropped in to chat about GAM events of past years.
AWB is looking for proposals from international astronomy organizations for programs during our Global Astronomy Month in April. If you belong to an organization that has a public event that needs support from AWB, then let us know! You willbe able to use the official GAM logo to promote the event.
We can also help by putting the word out on our official GAM web site and feature event on our social media outlets.
Proposals need to be submitted before January 30, 2015. See details here.
The OneSky Scope is a Great First Scope!
Looking for a great first scope or do you know somebody who is just starting in astronomy? Check out what Leigh and Chris said from the Racine Astronomical Society about our OneSky telescope.
"The OneSky is the perfect “First Scope” for amateurs new to astronomy. At the Racine Astronomical Society we always have one available for new members to try out during star parties and public nights. Last spring, new members Leigh and Chris “test drove” our OneSky and commented on how easy it was to setup, use, and find objects. By our next club event they had both ordered and received their own scopes. Now they use the OneSky during public nights – sharing the joy of the night sky with children and adults. They also love the “grab and go” ease of using the scope almost anywhere."
If you want it this scope for yourself or a loved one for the holidays, please visit the AWB store!
Our AstroPoetry this week is about AstroPoetry itself. Praise to "Astropoetica" celebrates the marriage between astronomy and poetry by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe with a beautiful accompanying photo by Valentin Grigore. Check out the whole series at our AstroPoetry blog.
