Tijekom vremena stekao sam dojam do većini na Astroforumu ovo nisu zanimljive vijesti.

Ovaj put zanimljiva vijest stiže i iz Srbije (ad  4.) - riječ je o novim pokušajima periodičkih izdanja na području zvjezdoznanstva:

April is just around the corner and, as usual, with it comes the hotly anticipated Global Astronomy Month promoted by Astronomers Without Borders. We encourage you to actively participate and join the numerous worldwide celebrations. This is a chance for sharing the night sky with your family and friends, but also an opportunity to connect with many different people around the world and to celebrate as one, under the same sky.

In this issue, plan ahead for the major astronomical events of the year with the free Universe Today ebook. Discover two inspiring projects from our sister office, the Office of Astronomy for Development: The Sky on a Bike, for underprivileged children in India, and a workshop designed to promote astronomy to science teachers in Nigeria. And if you’re a photography enthusiast, learn how you can participate in the Eclipse Megamovie Project.

Happy reading and clear skies!
The IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach team

1) "Astronomy for All" during Global Astronomy Month

For Global Astronomy Month (GAM) 2017, the IAU Working Group Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion has teamed up with Astronomers without Borders (AWB) and compiled a list of thirty resources to highlight during April. The thirty resources constitute a free, open source collection intended to support and facilitate the implementation of activities for people with disabilities. This collaboration between the IAU WG and AWB is also a call to action, to everyone who wishes to implement these kinds of inclusive activities and wishes to know more about how to create and implement resources for people with disabilities.

Find out more here: http://astronomerswithoutborders.org/gam2017-resources/astronomy-for-all.html

2)  Hands-on Basic Space Science Training for Primary and Secondary School Teachers (HBSST)

The “Hands-on Basic Space Science Training for Primary and Secondary School Teachers (HBSST)” project received an IAU Office of Astronomy for Development grant in 2017 from Task Force 2 — Children and Schools. HBSST is a workshop designed to promote the appreciation of astronomy amongst primary and junior secondary education science teachers in Nigeria. The workshop will be set in two locations: in Nsukka in the Enugu State, from 20 to 22 April; and in Port-Harcourt, in the Rivers State, from 23 to 25 April. All Nigerian teachers in primary and secondary schools can apply until 6 April 2017.

3) The Sky on a Bike

“The Sky on Bike” project was funded in 2016 by an IAU Office of Astronomy for Development grant, by Task Force 3 — Public Outreach, with the goal of popularising science via Astronomy and Space Sciences. This project has been introducing the wonders of the night sky to groups of economically disadvantaged people in India. Telescopes were carried on bicycles and set up at locations where the public was gathered. The objective was to foster science education and dispel myths related to celestial events, common in many areas of India. The team visited locally based NGOs to cater to the curiosity of underprivileged children, reaching around 450 children from nearby slums and other similar backgrounds.

4) National Outreach Contacts (NOC) Corner: News from Serbia

a) Aktuelna Astronomija Online
A new, free weekly astronomy newsletter, the AAO — Aktuelna Astronomija Online (Latest Astronomy Online News) is now available to all Serbian-speaking readers. The "AAO-Astronomy Online" bulletin will feature the latest international astronomical events and other curiosities in connection with astronomy. It will be published online every week in the Serbian language and each new issue will be ready for download every Sunday.
You can read the latest issues here: http://bit.ly/AAObilten
 
b) Nova Galaksija
The new online science magazine “Nova Galaksija” has been launched and is available in the Serbian language. The magazine has been inspired by an old popular Yugoslavian printed magazine “Galaksija” that was issued between 1972 and 2001. We hope that the new magazine will prove to be a worthy successor and we invite you to explore it at http://galaksijanova.rs/.
 
c) Radio Galaksija
The astronomy radio show and podcast “Radio Galaksija” has been running since 2008 had its 100th episode in October of 2016. The show is in the Serbian language and all episodes can be found online together with the latest — 104th — episode on the history of astronomy.

6) The Eclipse Megamovie Project

Contribute to a first-of-its-kind citizen science project — the Eclipse Megamovie! The project is looking to obtain photographs of the 21 August total solar eclipse to build a movie of images from coast to coast across the United States. The team coordinating the project is seeking skilled photographers to help create the movie as well as support solar science.  The final goal is to recruit over 1000 amateur photographers and astronomers who will be on the path of totality on 21 August 2017. Team members will receive training and will submit a practice image before the eclipse.

Find more information on the UC Berkeley’s official press release and by visiting the project’s official website here: https://eclipsemega.movie/ .

7) Light Pollution Lesson Plans for Educators

To promote understanding of the importance of reducing and eliminating light pollution, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) has compiled a list of interactive lesson plans that support educators who wish to incorporate light pollution awareness into their curriculum. The lesson plans range from “Too Bright at Night?”, created by ScienceNetLinks to "Hands-on-Activity: Measuring Light Pollution", by Teach Engineering — a series of seven lesson plans in total.

For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/2ntan3M

8) Free eBook: 101 Astronomical Events 2017

"101 Astronomical Events 2017" is a free ebook, launched by Universe Today and written by David Dickinson. Amateur astronomers such as Cory Schmitz (PhotographingSpace) and Paul Stewart (The Upside Down Astronomer) provided some of the beautiful photographs. This book inspires you to get outside with your friends and family and enjoy the best predicted astronomical events for 2017, such as occultations, eclipses, meteor showers, and much more.

Rekao da tiha većina ovo ipak pročita.  :76:

Lijepo je vidjeti astronomske događaje iz svijeta. Može se ponešto naučiti , a zašto ne i primijeniti lokalno.  :106:

Tako uskoro očekujem da Ach i ostali bicikloljupci na biciklima nose teleskope i organiziraju promatranja na svojim rutama. Tristać bi taman bio po mjeri.  :76:  :287:
