ISAN 2008
The website for ISAN is up. You can follow the tab above that says ISAN or just go to www.sidewalkastronomynight.com . Instead of listing all the participants this year, there is a map where you can post a pin, just like for results last year but this time, we'll use it for signing up. Should be a better visual and let us see quickly where we need to get more people involved.

ISAN 2008

I am sure everyone has wondered at the silence on the website and from the email list, I'm sorry but there was a lot to do, so much information was gathered from the 1st ISAN and consolidating all the contact information was a nightmare.

But, we're ready to go again this year. 2nd ISAN will be April 12, which should be a great day as it coincides with Yuri's night and it is also BEFORE Astronomy Day, so it will be a good opportunity to advertise your Astronomy Day events.

I'm in the porcess of putting up a new ISAN website to replace last years, so give me a couple of days and you can start signing up, it will be easier this year, you'll be able to enter your own information and location.

This year, our goal will be focusing on the number of people reached rather than the number of telescope we take out. We want to be in as many locations as possible and more than anything, give people who might never have looked through a scope to see for the first time.

Also - I need help!!! I can handle the administrative work for the Sidewalk Astronomers and John Dobson's website, but I really need a newsletter editor. As you know, I've been terrible at sending out newsletters. We only send out one printed newsletter a year, more of a "Year in Review" with electronic newsletters being sent out every month or more if there is a project such as ISAN. If you are interested, contact me so that we can discuss software, etc.

I do have the 1st ISAN booklet ready to mail, but everyone needs to make sure they reply to the email I am sending tomorrow. At the bottom of the email, there is a link to update your information, make sure your mailing address is correct.
