Recommended Posts

Bonjour à tous,

L'Union Astronomique Internationale organise à Bruxelles une journée sur l'astronomie amateur.
La participation est gratuite; vous pouvez également proposer un abstract pour y montrer vos travaux.

Bons ciels,



Dear amateur astronomers, The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is pleased to invite you to the first IAU100 Amateur Astronomy Day Event in Brussels, Belgium on 13 April 2019, organized in the framework of the IAU 100th anniversary Celebrations (IAU100, see ).

This inspirational full-day event will include the participation of NASA astronaut John Grunsfeld, and renowned scientists discussing hot topics in astronomy ranging from gravitational waves and the black hole in the galactic center to planet-forming disks and recent solar system missions. The program also includes presentations from the amateur astronomical community and a amateur-professional discussion. Thus the IAU aims to further build the relationship between amateur astronomers, their organizations and the IAU.

We hereby invite you to engage with the event by attending and/or sharing your work as an amateur astronomer. Please also circulate this information to other members of your astronomy organisation.

The event is free to attend for any amateur astronomer worldwide, and we look forward to participation from a broad range of countries to share astronomy Under One Sky!

You can find the announcement below, or visit our official website for the event for more information about the event and on how to submit an abstract:

Wishing you all the best for 2019 and we hope we can count on your further support during the IAU100 celebrations and hopefully your presence in Brussels!

With best regards,

Jorge Rivero González

IAU100 Coordinator
