ASTRONOMY 2008

Here is the place for the admins or moderators to do their annoucements. Or, if you have bought a new scope and want the whole world to know, do it here. Basically this is the place for any astro first-hand news.

In order to facilitate ease of delivery and printing, the A2008 crew has come out with a latest version of the publicity poster for A2008, with "in your face" activities held during the event. Hopefully this gives everyone a clearer picture of what to expect during A2008. It is purposely designed in B&W and in PDF form so that you can send it to all your friends/students/institutions/fellow interstellar alien beings/parents and other earthlings easily.

Hi all,

Here is a NEW colour version of the Publicity Poster complimenting the B&W one posted a few days ago.
There is also a PDF version for print outs and distribution to your friends.

For completeness, here is the link to the previous B&W version.

Updates:

I am going to start a new A2008 thread that is used exclusively for letting everyone know what to expect during the event.
It will be clearer that way for everyone since the thread here is getting long and convoluted.
For minor updates, etc, will still write under this thread, or the rest of A2008 Crew would (ex: asking for scope contributors, etc).
Thanks.

Latest Updates:

1) Final requests for any image contributions. Please submit via email (remuscj at yahoo dot com) by this weekend. High quality JPEG (10-12 quality) will do. As long as you are a SINGASTRO member, you are eligible to submit.

2) The evening stargazing session will NOT BE held at the Singapore Art Museum Courtyards area unlike the solar gazing in the day. We have obtained permission from the SIngapore Management University, and am extremely grateful for their support and green light given to hold the session in their grounds, at the space directly opposite the Museum. This open area although is relatively light polluted, is quite open, and there will be lots of passer-bys. It should attract lots of attention and instil public interest in this hobby and stargazing.

3) PUB (Public Utilities Board) will be sponsoring NEWATER bottles for this event. Again, we would like to extend our thanks to their gracious support. Note however, the bottles may be limited. Come early!

4) Will open a new thread post on what to expect in A2008 for the people this coming weekend under this section.

Cheers!
