Solar Eclipse at the Urania Sternwarte

Mar
27

On the 20th of March 2015 the Sun and Moon aligned to treat most of northern Europe to a very rare event - a Solar Eclipse. While the zone of totality passed through the Faroe Islands and Svalbard, Vienna still managed a noticable 70% coverage of the solar disk. The IAYC's telescope were in use as part of the eclipse observing event organised by the Planetarium Wien at the Urania Observatory. During the course of the 2 hour eclipse more than 1700 people got the chance to look through the telescope and listen to lecture given by Klaus Kieneswenger (leader of ALPACA) and Werner Gruber (from the Austrian TV show Science Busters).

Among the hundreds of the visitors to look though the IAYCs new 5 inch telescope was Daniel Reitz. His time lapse of the eclipse taken over the course of 90 minutes shows the degree to which those in Vienna experienced the event.

Change of Working Group

Mar
18

Unfortunately Klaus the leader of the working group "HAT - History and Astronomy through Time" will not be able to join the IAYC 2014 due to unforseen work related circumstances. Fortunately we were very lucky and quickly found the perfect replacement for Klaus: our new leader and member of the team - HANNAH!!

Hannah won't simply take over Klausi's working group though, she has created her own working group on the topic of historical astronomy and it's called HAGGIS! Please visit the "Next Camp" section of this homepage to find out more about Hannah and HAGGIS.

If you have already sent in an application for the IAYC you may now reconsider your working group choices - please send your updated 3 working group preferences to info@iayc.org. In case HAT was among your first 3 preferences we will replace it with HAGGIS unless we hear from you about your new choice of working groups.
