Edition 13 of the Astronomy On-line Newspaper

Projects and Deadlines

As we are now in the middle of the "Hot Week", it may be useful to summarize the main activities which have been planned for the next days.

Three projects have specific deadlines for delivery of observational data/information. These are:

1. The Final Event

The Final Event is concerned with the measurement of geographical latitude by all participating groups.

The deadline is Thursday, November 21, 18:00 UT.

2. Light Pollution

The Collaborative Project about light pollution will enable us to get an overview of the situation, in particular in Europe. We hope that the largest possible number of groups will be able to contribute, so that the resulting picture will be as complete as possible.

The deadline is Thursday, November 21, 20:00 UT.

3. Best Group Web Site

In an earlier Newspaper article, we announced that prizes would be given for the best group Web sites, as voted by the participants.

The deadline is Thursday, November 21, 22:00 UT.

In addition to these three main activities, the evaluation of the Astronomy On-line project will start tomorrow when a corresponding questionnaire will be made available. This is a very important part of the Astronomy On-line project, since it will give the participants the opportunity to inform the organizers about what they liked and what they did not like and, in turn, the organizers will learn about the strengths and weaknesses of this unique programme.

Please be ready to spend a few minutes to fill out this questionnaire when a link appears on the top page of Astronomy On-line tomorrow, November 21, 15:00 UT.

We are also now preparing the Astronomy On-Line Certificates which will be issued to the participants at the end of the Programme, that is, in the evening of Friday, November 22. More about this will be published later.

The observations will continue tonight, and we hope that many more images will become available tomorrow, but already last night, many very good observations were made, and you will find information about how to access these in the first article of today's Newspaper.

Finally, do not forget the other Collaborative Projects which have not yet finished! We hope that all of them will receive useful input from the participating groups!
