Countdown to 100 Hours and ISAN!
We have only a few weeks until the 3rd ISAN and the 100 Hours of Astronomy project. Make sure to register your events on the 100HA website, www.100hoursofastornomy.org. There are a lot of events posted already, but few of them are amateur events. Many of you have sent emails outlining the events you plan to do but they aren't registered. We need them registered because that is where the public will be able to find you. 

We all need to start contacting amateurs we know and asking them to join us. There is a lot happening with 100 HA and there is definately something for everyone. Please help us make this the largest international astronomy event ever!
