AWB BLM Statement

 

AWB partners with the Discover the COSMOS Challenge for GAM2013 The Discover the COSMOS Challenge is open to teachers, trainers, and students from all over the world. Design and submit a learning activity using free images provided by the Astronomical Observatory of Coimbra, the National Schools Observatory and the Faulkes Telescope Project, OR your own images.

From 1 to 22 April, an online “Earth and Sky” photo contest will be open for submission by photography enthusiasts from around the world. The contest theme, “Dark Skies Importance,” has two categories: “Beauty of the Night Sky” and “Against the Lights.” Photos submitted to the contest should aim to address either category: either to impress people on how important and amazing the starry sky is or to impress people on how bad the problem of light pollution has become. Both categories illustrate how light pollution affects our lives. More information on the competition at The World at Night website...

THIRTY NIGHTS OF STARPEACE is a global project that shares the starry-night experience among neighboring astronomy groups across national borders, one segment of the globe at a time, on successive nights in April. It brings a spirit of fellowship, communication and common love for the night sky within a specific part of the world every single night. The way it works is that astronomy clubs from different countries connect during a star party. Download the STARPEACE poster and GAM2013 logos!

April 6, 2013 Jupiter will be directly overhead (“at zenith”) after sunset on April 6, 2013. That means it's a great time to observe Jupiter! You can see Jupiter with naked eyes or you can grab a pair of binoculars or a telescope and see Jupiter’s moons. If you have a telescope, you’ll see Jupiter’s white-colored, cold ammonia ice zones mixed with darker belts of warmer currents.
