AMATEUR ASTRONOMER SURVEY
Marni Berendsen, of Astronomical Society of the
Pacific and the Navigator team at NASA JPL has an
Astronomy Concepts Survey available and is asking for
amateur astronomers to participate. Following is a
message from Marni and the link to her survey:
"Complete this new Astronomical Society of the Pacific
(ASP) survey and have a chance to win a $100 gift
certificate to the ASP Catalog! You can assist in
developing training and materials for amateur
astronomers to help the public understand concepts of
astronomy. In addition, we are collecting your
experiences with any astronomy misconceptions you have
come across in your encounters with the public.
Access the survey at:
As an added bonus, if you belong to an astronomy club
and 15 or more of your club members respond to the
survey, you will receive your club's responses (no
names will be included). This could help in planning
programs for your club and can serve as a topic of
discussion at a club meeting. Just have your members
put your club's full name on the form where they enter
their name for the drawing."
Marni indicated that any astronomy club wishing to do
so may add the link above to their club website.
