Two New Projects to Close IYA 2009


Seasons Without Borders Dec 21 and 22

Join amatuer astronomers around the world on Dec 21-22 by taking your telescope out for a couple of hours and sharing the sky with the public.  Seasons Without Borders is a program devised by amateur astronomers and supported by Astronomers Without Borders. As an affiliate of AWB, the Sidewalk Astronomers is taking part in this project and we hope many of you will join in. For more information, check the Astronomers Without Borders website at www.astronomerswithoutborders.org

Dusk of IYA  Dec 31, 2009

Just as we welcomed the International Year of Astronomy with Dawn of IYA, the Sidewalk Astronomers have decided to make a last minute project called Dusk of IYA to say good bye to this year of incredible astronomy activity.  We know that New Year's Eve is not a night that most of us want to do public astronomy, but we are asking that you take a scope out early in the evening and do a little solar observing as the Sun sets on the IYA. If you want to stay out and observe the Moon and Jupiter, that's even better. Really, parties don't start until nine and there won't be another IYA soon ... We've set up a blog at http://duskofiya.blogspot.com/ so that you can post your last photos of the year and and see what others around the world were doing at the end of 2009.
