ACEAP 2019

The Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassadors Program is a collaboration between Associated Universities Inc., the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, the National Optical Astronomy Observatory, and Gemini Observatory. The program brings amateur astronomers and astronomy educators, formal and informal to astronomy facilities in Chile. They receive extensive training in the instruments and science performed at these observatories and communicating these to the public.

I'm thrilled to be part of the 2019 cadre. I will blog and write about what I learn and list that and related material here. EarthSky, one of the most visited astronomy sites on the net, is also carrying some of my posts.
