First, check out the Thanksgiving-tacular Carnival of Space #80 at Starts with a Bang!
I’ve been keeping up with some of the International Year of Astronomy news at Pamela Gay’s Star Stryder blog, and you should, too! One of the “cornerstone” projects is the Portal to the Universe. Here, you can look at lots of astronomy-related blog and image feeds, or find an astronomy club or department near you. Astronomy for your cyberspace and your real space! You can do early registration here.
I can’t wait to check out all the cool IYA2009 cornerstones! Galileoscope aims to put DIY observing tools into the hands of as many people as possible. Cosmic Diary will track the real lives of astronomers. Gee, I hope they include grad student bloggers in that one! We need each others’ support to realize that we’re not the only one going “AHH!!”
Also, I noticed that our lab had replaced the NRAO 50th banner with a IYA2009 banner. Go us!
