International Year of Astronomy Update

I am at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Pasadena.  Today we had a press conference updating the International Year of Astronomy Activities.  Alan Boyle of MSNBC posted a nice blog on the press conference.

The Galileoscope Photo and Sketching contest was my idea…now I have to finish writing the rules and posting them!  Thanks for moving that up my priority list of things to do, Alan!

I keep meanign to blog Galaxy Zoo 2.  This is an addictive little project that enlists people to help classify galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.  Check it out.

Be sure to keep up to date on future IYA activites as well.
