DON'T STOP AT THE FIRST PAGE!!!!
5:37 pm edt
We've noticed that many people visit the website and only read the first page - PLEASE, we have so much information
on this site - CLICK THROUGH! If you want information on John Dobson ( like if you want to learn about his new book ), please
visit the page about John to learn the latest news. Likewise, for ISAN we're going to move all the information over from
the ISAN site and we'll be updating the IYA page regularly.

ISAN SUCCESS and IYA 2009
Thanks to all of you, ISAN was a success. From the best estimates, we seem to have reached about the same numbers as last
year - approx. 20,000 people looked through scopes on the 12th or days just before and after. We did have some bad weather
in many locations, but you guys were persistant! We've received several reports that say you stayed and waited and observed
through the clouds and in short periods when it cleared.
4:49 pm edt
PLEASE - do not post any more on the ISAN blog, we will
be adding a new blog to this website. We are now maintaining two sites and we want to combine them all into this site. If
you have photos of ISAN, please post the link on the guestbook. We will be moving the guestbook to this site, so please post
your results, stories, and photos.
If you haven't signed up for the email list - please do so immediately.
And if you haven't updated your profile with your mailing address, do that as soon as possible by following the link at
the bottom of the email.
We are now moving on to IYA and several projects for 2009. Since so many of the IYA projects
overlap, we can share resources and work so let us know what your national projects are. One main project will be the 100
Hours of Astronomy from April 2- 5, 2009. 3rd ISAN will be held during the 100 Hours and will be April 4, 2009.
We have a lot of work to do for all of these projects to be successful, and we need you!
