“Stars for All!” – online event

an official event for Global Astronomy Month (April 2015)

*** Join it LIVE here! ***

Join this fabulous live online observing event from the Virtual Telescope in Italy, hosted by Dr. Gianluca Masi!

Join us as we take a great journey in the sky: we will travel to very distant objects, from the Solar System to the borders of space and time. An online, remote observing event hosted by The Virtual Telescope Project.

Special Announcement!   Astronomers Without Borders is crossing another border! In conjunction with the Virtual Telescope, Galileo Teachers Training Program and Astronomical Observatory, University of Valencia, AWB is making it possible for both sighted people and people with visual impairments to take part in this live online observing event!

In what we believe is a world first we are allowing for the real time images to be printed off and converted into a tactile surface so people with visual impairments around the world will be able to experience the wonder of observing with the Virtual Telescope LIVE.   If you wish get involved in this unique observing experience you will need swell paper and a thermal expansion machine, and to follow the procedure below:

Procedure:

1. During the event the JPEGs of the images from the Virtual Telescope will be processed and made available for download. Download these images as they become available

2. Print the images on swell paper

3. Put the swell paper thorough a thermal expansion machine

Due to the image processing required there will be a small delay between the image on the screen and it being available for printing, but we hope to keep this to a minimum.
