[156.07] Public Outreach with the Night Sky Network

M. Bobrowsky (STScI)

The Night Sky Network (NSN) is a nationwide coalition of amateur astronomy clubs bringing the science and inspiration of NASA's missions to the public. The NSN is a partnership between the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and NASA’s Origins and Universe Education Forums, the Navigator Program, and the Kepler mission. This program provides outreach materials for amateur astronomy clubs and a forum for those involved in community outreach to exchange ideas and learn from each other. NSN Outreach ToolKits of materials are provided free to member astronomy clubs to convey a variety of astronomy and space-related topics. In addition, NSN members have opportunities to talk to real NASA scientists and engineers about their latest research in a series of monthly presentations. Come and find out how you can connect with a Night Sky Network club in your area!
