Remote observing provides an exciting new way for people to discover the wonder and beauty of the Universe. Through the Internet, they can meet together at a remotely located telescope, crossing borders and sharing the excitement for the Universe without leaving their homes. We invite you to discover what remote astronomy can do for you. It's a chance to feel like a scientist while having fun with friends from around the world.

Is there anybody out there?” is the topic of our April 7 remote observing session. This is the question people most often have in mind when pondering the vastness of the heavens.  To date, astronomers have discovered about 450 planets outside the Solar System - the first step toward an answer to this question.  During GAM2010’s April 7 remote observing session, we will be examining live the “fingerprints” of one of those exoplanets, sharing the excitement with you and your online friends wherever you are.

Dates: 7 April 2010
