Autumn Moonwatch Call to Action

Dear UK Astronomy Community,

We are now well into IYA2009, and Professor Ian Robson and I would like to thank you for all your efforts to date in engaging with the public and bringing IYA2009 to life. We are now gearing up for our next big national event, our Autumn Moonwatch, which will take place between 24 October and 01 November 2009.

During Autumn Moonwatch we want to get as many people as possible looking up at the night sky, whether through a telescope, binoculars or with their naked eyes, and for that we need your help!

Twitter Meteorwatch Report

The following is a blog report about the Twitter Meteorwatch, written by Adrian West of Newbury Astronomical Society:

The Perseid Meteorwatch has now come to a close, the Astrobunker is locked, and all involved have been able to catch up on some much needed sleep.

On the evenings of the 11th and 12th of August 2009 a truly phenomenal event took place with thousands of Twitter users joining in with a worldwide Meteorwatch.
