We received the following message from the Astronomical Society of Malta:


In commemoration of the 50 year anniversary of Apollo 11 and the first human landing on the moon, the Astronomical Society of Malta is organizing an international collaboration entitled “Moon For All Mankind - 50”. Anyone from around the world can join this collaboration by filling in the following Google Form and submitting their best photo of the moon. 
 
 
The submissions will be pinned on the globe on the same page at the location provided in the Google Form. Partial lunar photos are encouraged as they will be more unique however any moon photo will be accepted. The best moon photo from each country will eventually be selected for a 2D Map poster. 

 

We received the following from the organisers of the International Astronomical Youth Camp. If you're interested, please contact them directly - details are at the bottom. Note the short notice, applications should be in by 29th March 2019, or the price goes up!

 As well as the public lectures, we at the ASG carry out a range of outreach activities throughout the year. During the winter months, these focus on introducing people to the night sky and giving them the chance to observe the Moon, stars, galaxies and nebulae through a range of telescopes. During the summer, the focus not unexpectedly changes to solar observing.

Come along to these events and meet us, whether you're a beginner or an experienced astronomer. If you're thinking of buying a telescope, you can see the various types some of our members use - but you should also check out some of the advice available online.

Some of our upcoming activities are listed below.

The Society regrets to announce that, due to a change of requirements by Glasgow City Council, it is unable to offer the Stars over the Botanics or Sun over the Botanics events until further notice.  We would like to thank all members of the public who have attended these events in the past for their support and we do hope to be able to offer these events again at some date in the future.
