|Sidewalk Astronomy Night Update
Wow! We now have over 100 participants for the 1st International Sidewalk Astronomy Night. It has been 6 weeks since the first emails conterning ISAN were sent and I can hardly believe how much response we are getting.
One thing that I have noticed, while we have just over 100 participants listed, the email list has over 300 registered. I did add some Sidewalk Astronomers from our club contact list but it still means that at least 150 people have signed up to get email updates but haven't contacted us about their participation. If you are one of those, please let us know if you plan on going out.
We're still short of clubs in Europe ( Spain, France, Belgium, and the Scandinavian countries) as well as Japan. If you know amateurs in those countries, please contact them about ISAN.
A couple of you have posted tips on the blog and that is great. For those of us who regularly take a scope out on the sidewalk, we forget how intimidating the first time can be, please post ideas and advice for those new to sidewalk astronomy.
