If you haven't joined our mailing list, please do so, especially if you are taking a telesecope out on May 19th. PLEASE, PLEASE do not send me an email with your email address - I don't have time to manually sign you up.

There are flyers posted, please cut and paste them to add to your own club's information to hand out on the night of May 19th. If anyone has flyers that they would like to share, please send them to me and I'll post them. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do the .pdf stuff yet, so it will be cut/paste also or I can post a link to your site if you have them download-able.
We just ask everyone to add our website address to any information handed out during International Sidewalk Astronomy Night so that the public can learn more about sidewalk astronomy if they wish.

May 19, 2007 will be the 1st International Sidewalk Astronomy Night and we invite all amateur astronomers to join us! We'll have telescopes out on the street corners, in front of movie theaters, in state and national parks, in city centre parks ... anywhere there are crowds of people, from San Francisco to Sao Paulo to Kharkov.
Our goal is to take 1000 scopes to the public on the same night worldwide, reaching hundreds of thousands of people and uniting amateur astronomers on different continents. We also hope many amateurs will try and like this different approach to astronomy outreach and will continue to hold sidewalk observing sessions throughout the year.
The events don't have to be large, one or two scopes at a location will be enough and if your club has more scopes and members, why not set up multiple observing sites around your city?  We know that many clubs and organizations have regularly scheduled public events at local observatories and planetariums, so we  hope that you can spare one or two members for sidewalk observing.  
If you wish to be a part of this exciting event, please send an email to with contact information and it will be posted immediately. Exact location isn't needed yet, but any contact information submitted will be posted on the website.
Also, for updates, please join our mailing list and we will notify you of our progress.
