Observing Program Announcement: Lunar and Lunar II Now Have Imaging Certifications

Recognizing that many of our membership are very seriously into imaging, the Astronomical League has added this as an option for two of our fundamental Observing Programs: Lunar and Lunar II.  The requirements are the same as they have been, but now an Imaging certificate may be earned.  Certificates will have an "I" appended to the certificate numbers.

A member may earn these certifications both ways.  Multiple certificates will be issued, but only one pin per Observing Program be awarded.  For more information, contact the Observing Program Coordinators.

Observing Program Announcement: New Lunar Observing Program Coordinator

The Astronomical League would like to recognize Nina Chevalier for her service and dedication to the Lunar Observing Program.  Thank you Nina.  The Observing Program will temporarily transition to Aaron Clevenson, one of the National Observing Program Directors, through the end of the 2020.  If you are working on the Lunar certification, please be sure to send the submission to the new coordinator.

INTERNATIONAL DARK SKY WEEK

The Astronomical League is pleased to be a co-sponsor of IDA's International Dark Sky Week. This is a week-long celebration of the night. This year, IDA is encouraging people around the world to come together online to celebrate the night and engage with authors, creators, scientists, and educators whose works have been vital to the movement to protect the night from light pollution. 

The videos will be streamed to YouTube and Facebook daily from April 19-26. For the complete schedule, click here:
