Welcome to the The Ameteur International Astronomical Union!
There are many of us out there who have such an interest in astronomy, that we strongly feel that we deserve a position in the International Astronomical Union; but we aren't qualified as yet.
So, here is an ameteur version of the International Astronomical Union where we discuss ANYTHING we want to - related to astronomy - just like the original IAU, but with both ameteur members and others!
Are you ready to step into the smaller version of the elite international astronomy body?

Attention: All current double star programees
Amature astronomers have proven that they are a creative lot. Rather making their own chairs or making a portable observing desk. Here is a place where we can all freely express our creative ideas.Last Activity: Yesterday 05:56 AM

There are many exciting things going on with Jupiter.
1)It is currently very near its closest opposition since the 1960's.
2)The Southern Equatorial Belt Revival could happen anytime!!!
3)There are Jupiter moon events going on almost every night.
4)A large FOV eyepiece can show Jupiter AND Uranus in the SAME view!!
Join this group if you are interested in sharing updates and other info on Jupiter.
First one to report seeing the SEB begin to revive gets a free Sweet Pickle!!!

KISS as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_principle.
This is an attempt to simplify and rationalize the world and to give simple solutions to complex problems. Everyone is encouraged to bring their ideas and solutions that are simpler than ones offered by some other source. Astronomy is not very cheap and simple hobby, and making it a bit more comfortable and affordable is always welcome!Last Activity: 01-25-2013 09:20 AM

[B][I]Where Were You When This Astronomical Event Happened? [/I][/B] is a group at this astronomy Forum, this International Astronomy Community, which focuses on the personal experience of people at this site. The focus is on the personal experience of each person when a particular event occurred in the recent history of astronomy. One of the values of such a focus is that it helps the memory. The synchronization of one's personal life, one's micro-world, with the macro-universe is a helpful juxtaposition---for those who would like to join.-Ron Price, Tasmania:whistling:Last Activity: 02-13-2013 09:20 AM
