Dear friends,

I am writing to you due to your involvement and engagement with the
International Year of Astronomy in 2009 (IYA2009). Throughout 2009 we
had millions of people marvel at the night sky through stargazing
events, like 100 Hours of Astronomy and Galilean Nights, two of the
IYA2009 Global Cornerstone Projects.

In 2019, we are doing it again.

Spread over four days and nights in January 2019, amateur and
professional astronomers, astronomy enthusiasts and the general public
are all invited to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for astronomy by
taking part in a scheduled activity or to organise on their own as part
of this exciting celebration. We welcome astronomy activities of all
kinds, including workshops, tours, talks, sky observation activities,
classroom projects, lectures, field trips, art projects and more! The
sky's the limit with possible astronomy projects for the 100 Hours of
Astronomy event.

In 2019, we will be facilitating the organisation of observation
activities as well as any kind of astronomy-related event.

The 2019 100 Hours of Astronomy global project is being planned as part
of the International Astronomical Union’s 100th Anniversary in 2019
(IAU100, see www.iau-100.org ). The year will consist of many events
around the world to celebrate astronomy under the theme Under One Sky,
but we will be starting with the 100 Hours of Astronomy event from 10-13
January 2019.

As a central hub for information, we have created a website
(100hoursofastronomy.org) where those who are interested can explore
resources and materials, and can register their event to be included in
the IAU100 calendar ( www.iau-100.org/events ). We invite you to
brainstorm about possible activities you’d like to organise to join this
global event. The global coordinator for the 100 Hours of Astronomy,
Bethany Downer, can be reached by email if you wish to discuss this
exciting opportunity with her directly.

If you have any questions or further interest in this event, let us
know! We also welcome and encourage you to share the information about
this event with your network.

Best regards,

Bethany Downer
100 Hours of Astronomy Coordinator
IAU100 Global Project

Dear all,

we just launched the 100 Hours of Astronomy website, see www.100hoursofastronomy .org

You can find an overview about the initiative, news, tips to organise events, resources to organise inclusive actions and soon there will be a world map with activites

In case you would like to translate information to your language for further dissemination, you can also find a news item about it here: www.iau-100.org/participate-100-hours-of-astronomy

Please start disseminating it as much as possible in your country and especially encourage the organisation of events by astronomy organisations, amateur astronomy groups, planetaria, science centers, museums, etc.

Any type of activity related to astronomy could be included as part of the event.

Dear all,

we just launched the Einstein School programme and website ( www.einsteinschools.org ). Please see the website and the news item about it www.iau-100.org/become-an-einstein-school

The Einstein Schools Programme will help schools and students across the world explore the latest discoveries in astronomy. Students can learn about current research on black holes, gravitational lenses, and gravitational waves as they explore the importance of gravity and its effect on stars, galaxies, and light. Students can also learn about how Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, one of the towering achievements of 20th-century physics, was confirmed 100 years ago during a total solar eclipse. In that same year, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) was formed to encourage scientific collaboration among astronomers worldwide. This project is part of that worldwide celebration of the formation of the IAU.

Following the collaborative spirit that is the basis of the IAU, the Einstein Schools Programme will also allow schools worldwide to collaborate. The schools can share their studies of gravity in astronomy and discuss their creative approaches to displaying what they have learned about the nature of gravity, black holes and other compact objects, the detection of gravity waves, and whether light can be affected by gravity. The Einstein School program is designed to help schools foster an interest in science and technology and to cultivate science-talented youth in countries across the world.

To become part of the Einstein Schools network, one should form a diverse team of students and teacher advisors who want to do creative work in communicating about gravity and astronomy. The team can include students from different grade levels and teachers from any discipline. The more diverse the team, the better.

Teams can use any form of communication, from storytelling to dance, from photography to poems. After the result is posted online, the Project Staff and other schools around the world will provide it with feedback. Professional astronomers and other mentors are available to help your continuing efforts if there is no local mentor available.

At the moment we would like for people to start considering participation and to form teams. Lead teachers can register at www.einsteinschools.org/register-interest.php to get notices and updates.

Please disseminate as much as possible within your networks, especially the ones related to education and teachers.

Best regards,

Jorge

Dear all,

for your information, we are launching the 100 Hours of Astronomy website at the end of the week and that would mark when we will start making full-time promotion of the event and reaching out to amateur organisations directly for their participation on the event.

Before that, after many discussions, I would like to make the announcement that we are going to change the dates of the project one week earlier, on 10-13 January 2019.

We received feedback from different sources in the last couple of weeks that might be best - in order to attract more participation of amateur astronomers - to move the date of the 100 Hours of Astronomy event a week earlier, to the weekend 10-13 January, where the sky conditions are more attractive for organising star parties. The Moon will be Waxing Crescent (between 17-40 % visible during the weekend) and also Mars would be close to it. The sky will be Moon-free at earlier time so would be best for people wanting to focus on observing deeper objects.

The weekend we were originally targeting (18-21 January) has full Moon (because we were targeting the eclipse in Latin America) but that might refrain some amateur astronomers to organise spontaneous activities or even could backfire and jeopardise further participation of amateur astronomers in other activities during the year.

In any case, the idea is to encourage that also astronomy-related activities other than star parties will be organised during that weekend but we also want to use it to attract the amateur astronomy community so it might be wise for the long-term to change the dates. We need to look at this project as a way of showing the strength of our network for the kick-off of the IAU100 activities worldwide.

I hope this does not cause any problems in any planned activities and you could understand that overall is the better decision. In any case, we are flexible and any activities on the weekend 18-21 January, especially if they are related to the Lunar eclipse, can also be included in the programme.

We are going to organise next week a couple of calls to discuss IAU100 updates (soon Sze-leung will share the information) and we could discuss it further then.

Best regards,

Jorge

Il y a 3 choses qui apparaissent à ce stade, Thierry...
Les dates importantes sont les 11,12 et 13 avril..
La FFAAB est aussi au courant du projet 100 ans UAI et il y aura une réunion fin septembre pour en discuter (entre autres).
Les clubs sont libres d'organiser un événement à leur guise, il me semble (il faudrait l'inscrire et on peut aussi en parler à Astronamur)

Raoul, puisque tu es informé...

Et comment on se coordonne, cette fois-çi ?
En 2009, c'était relativement clair, maintenant, on pige pas trop...

=> C'est la FFAAB qui s'occupe de tout ?
=> C'est chacun qui s'occupe de son/ses activité(s) ?
=> Pour chaque club, ok, il peut l'organiser de son côté...
=> Aucunes activités "globales", comme demandé ? Cela se coordonne comment ? Un endroit, plusieurs endroits ?
=> c'est celui qui la propose qui doit l'organiser seul ?
=> Il n'y a rien d'officiel, d'activité au niveau "global", comme en 2009 ?

A ce stade, je m'interroge...
