August 2013

Dear Fellow Communicators,

August is usually the time for holidays, but for those of you who like to plan ahead, we already have a December holiday idea for your kids — the very first ESO astronomy camp!  

The camp will take place from 26-31 December 2013 at the Astronomical Observatory of the Aosta Valley, located in Saint-Barthelemy, Nus, Italy. Several partners, including ESO, are providing a total of five free trips to be awarded to the winning applicants.

The camp will explore the theme of the visible and the invisible Universe through lectures, hands-on activities, and nighttime observations with the telescopes and instruments at the observatory. Social activities, winter sports, and excursions will contribute to making the camp a memorable experience for the participants. Read more about how to apply here.

This month we also welcome two outreach partners:

  • Our ESO Science Outreach Network has been joined by representatives for Hungary: Ákos Kereszturi and Ferenc Horvai, who are looking after our new ESO mini-site dedicated to Hungary: http://www.eso.org/public/hungary/.

  • Our Photo Ambassador: Malte Tewes is an astronomer working in the field of cosmology with gravitational lensing, who is passionate about La Silla's scenic landscape and its high-tech installations.

Finally, don’t forget to make all your arrangements for the CAP2013 meeting in Warsaw! This is looking as if it will be the biggest and boldest CAP meeting so far.

Let’s reach new heights in astronomy together,
Lars Lindberg Christensen (lars@eso.org)
Head, ESO education and Public Outreach Department (ePOD)
