Universe Sampler Program Introduction

The Universe Sampler observing program is a unique observing program designed specifically for the beginning observer. It is designed to expose the beginner to a sample of the many different types of objects that the Universe has to offer for our observing enjoyment. It is designed to help the new observer learn his or her way around the sky and to teach some of the basics of astronomy.

The Universe Sampler will take you on an exciting journey through the heavens. Once you have completed the Universe Sampler observing program, you should be well acquainted with the night sky and be able to find your way among the stars with no problem.

Sun Spotters Program Introduction

By following this regimen the observer will learn the various features of solar activity, learn how these change during their passage across the disk, and learn how to develop a regular observing program. Rules: Before you start any solar observing program, make absolutely certain that you have safe filters and a safe set-up. Only use filters from reputable sources, and never use a "solar filter" that screws into an eyepiece. Before starting this program, please review Information Required to Complete the Sunspotter Program. Outreachlog.xls. AwardLogDirections. Outreach Award Introduction. Outreach Award Chair: Mike Ramirez11942 Harmony Dr.Jacksonville, Florida 32246Telephone: 904-860-1454E-mail: Introduction The Astronomical League has been highly successful motivating League club/society members to not only get out and observe, but to also record and submit their observations for appropriate recognition.

Outreach Award Introduction

The stated goal for the Observing Programs is that they offer encouragement and certificates of accomplishment for demonstrating observing skills with a variety of instruments and objects. The success of the Astronomical League's various Observing Programs and awards is but just one of the League's many benefits to its member club/societies. The new League Outreach Award will afford individual Astronomy Outreach recognition. The AstronomyOutreach listserv started by Scott Roberts of Meade Instruments has been an excellent vehicle to share ideas, promote outreach, and encourage those involved in outreach.
