An Observing Challenge For the Summer
- Hey Everyone,
At our last Centre meeting I had a short presentation in which I
basically asked for everyone to help me complete a project of
mine ... which I'm hoping can become a project of "Ours."
On all those cloudy nights (sooo many lately) when I'm not an
astromomer, I am also a hobby game designer. One of my latest
projects is an Astronomy Card Game. I would like everyone to
consider helping out by submitting a picture or sketch (or 2 or 3) of
certain objects to be included. All photos and sketches will be
credited to their author on the card on which they are used. If
everyone would do this, I would be willing to make the finished
project available to all members as a potential fundraiser.
In case you weren't able to be at our last meeting, I will be posting
a couple of files to the group. The first is a list of the things I
am looking for (a pdf file) and the second is a copy of the
presentation I gave which may (or may not) make things clearer. This
presentation is a Flash Presentation, so any Web Browser should be
able to show it.
If you have any questions or suggestions I'd love to hear from you,
and here's to a summer of great observing.
- The files I mentioned are now uploaded in a folder entitled "Astronomy Game"
in the files section.
And when you have a chance (on that rare cloudy night) you can check out some
of my other non-astronomy games at
