Xi'an  Shaoyi Yang have a big refractor which has a 320mm-diameter.He will use it to do something for the activity.


I'm a student in senior high school in Shanghai China. i operate a school astronomy society. The sidewalk astronomy night is realy a good idea,which can make people on the street love astronomy. Futhermore, it can also do good to our society.  So ,I want to be part of it.

I hope that day will be a nice sunny day so the nightsky will be clear.then, if so, i plan to set 2-3 telescope,or even open school's observatory to observe the beautiful planet--saturn. meanwhile,use some post board to teach people some basic knowledge...



I'sorry maybe I'm a little late send you the e-mail.  I'm a volunteer of ISAN.I will go to a park on the night of May,19th with four of my  friends.We know that there are many children who know little about stars but are curious about them in the park,so we decide to let them join us,and have more fun with them.We will  recognize stars and constellations with them,teach some general astronomical knowledge and  tell Greek mythologies of the constellations. Comparing observing the Saturn with the telescope in our school observatory,we would  rather go to the park,though we just have a small binocular,because we think the most important is how much we love the sky and stars. I hope everything will go well,especially the weather. Best wishes to ISAN. Xiayan Zhao,in Shanghai   赵 夏琰


We hope to join this great night, and let every people know that there is a virgin place, that is night sky. Our equipment are Meade AR6 and 254mm reflection telescope. Tony Gu  and friend (sorry, the name was only in Chinese and sometimes I can't cut/paste it). gu shijun
