100 Hours of Astronomy (and the 100th Post!)

What do you know…a little poetry going on here.  This is my 100th post on the Half-Astrophysicist Blog and it happens to be about 100 Hours of Astronomy!  100 Hours of Astronomy is just that…100 Hours of continous astronomy activities in person and online.

The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is opening a special exhibit on Galileo which they will kick off with a live webcast on April 2nd. You can check out webcasts from a variety of science centers.  Catch up on the latest happenings at observatories around the world (including Kitt Peak) with a series of webcasts called Around the World in 80 Telescopes.

Saturday is the 24 Hour Global Star Party which will take place at thousands of sites around the world (check your local listings for a site near you).  Wrap up the weekend with Sunday, dedicated to the Sun.
