Dear Fellow Communicators,

Preparations for ESO’s Open House Day 2013 are in full swing. The event takes place on 19 October at our Headquarters in Garching near Munich, Germany. If you are in the area, come and pay us a visit. This time you will have the opportunity to see ESO's new Headquarters extension for the first time (the last concrete is being poured as we speak), participate in a live connection to ALMA, the largest astronomical project in existence, take a trip to Chile through our virtual tours, take a moment to relax with our Chile Chill video podcasts, watch documentaries and planetarium shows and much more. You can read everything about the event in the Announcement section of this newsletter.

One of the consequences of living in today’s information-saturated society is the need for good  information management. With more than 8000 hand-picked images and 2000 videos in our ESO media archives alone, we admit that it can be hard to get an overview of what is on offer. I have prepared a few interesting searches with our  advanced search that offer superb time-lapses, large images, or high-res fisheye images, videos and panoramas for planetarium use (bookmark them as they update dynamically):

Also this month, we have a new iTunes logo for our ESOcast. Check it out and tell us what you think!

We would also like to congratulate Stuart Clark, winner of the European Astronomy Journalism Prize 2013, as well as all the journalists participating! You can find out more in the announcement here below.

Finally, be sure to check our events list to the right of the newsletter as we have many exciting activities coming, such as:

Let’s reach new heights in astronomy together,

Head, ESO education and Public Outreach Department (ePOD)
