Check out the calendar!
Several items have been added on the calendar. Please check and let me know what you think. If you have a google calendar and you have only astronomy events, please send me the link and I'll include it.

The newsletter is on the way! This will be more of a book, but I had so much from ISAN and so many articles and updates that we just had to have a really big newsletter. This will be the first of the "yearly" printed newsletters, the others will be sent electronically every other month. Please keep sending updates and articles, but please put "newsletter" in the subject line so that I can keep track of them.

On October 19, 2007 at 7 pm (central) Dr. J. Craig Wheeler, renowned astrophysicist and author, will lead an exploration of ideas at the cutting edge of current astrophysics. His extraordinary journey to investigate explosions of supernovae, resulting neutron stars, mysterious black holes, and elusive gamma ray bursts are far from science fiction. (Full summary below)

We would like to invite members of your organization and/or visitors of your website to view our Live Webcast of the lecture, October 19, 2007 at 7 pm (central). If possible, posting a link to this event on your website or forwarding the information to your members who may be interested in this lecture is greatly appreciated. Our webcasts are very high quality, and viewers can submit questions to the speaker through our website and the speaker answers the online questions in real time. The webcasting software we use requires viewers to download a small plugin, but it is very simple and quick to install.

A link to the details of the lecture and the webcast could be found at:
