Never has there been a man and
his movement so profound and embraced internationally than the efforts of John Dobson. Generations of astronomy enthusiasts
and budding astronomers have been touched by bringing the cosmos closer to everyone.As with every movement, many caught this vision and
joined forces to continue this dynamic mission to the four corners of the earth. These efforts birthed International Sidewalk
Astronomy Night (ISAN). Starting with 300 clubs and countless individuals with ISAN 1, it is estimated that well over
20,000 individuals looked through a scope. Last year for ISAN 3, and the 100 Hours of Astronomy, partnered with International
Year of Astronomy - a massive influx of events took place. At last count our numbers show 2,370 events, however,
those were only ones posted and we suspect there were many more world wide. This new surge of participation
has sent waves of enthusiasm around the world several times over.
Join us on March 20th for the
biggest ISAN yet! As John always says, "Billions of eyes are waiting!"
