.Astronomy CAS Talk

November 2, 2009 — Leave a comment

Last week I gave a talk to the Cardiff Astronomical Society, I thought I’d share it for them and anyone else that might be interested. The talk overviewed some of the interesting and fun online astronomy that is going on at the moment. I also gave a demo of several websites or services.

You can download the slides here and what follows are links to various sites that I mentioned during the talk. The talk as a whole was inspired by the .Astronomy conferences, the second of which is taking place in Leiden from November 30th to December 4th this year. You can read more about that on the conference website www.dotastronomy.com and the twitter feed @dotastronomy.

As well as these links, you may want to click around this site itself, as it contains many more examples of online astronomy.
