We are happy to report that all the goals for the Project were reached without any problems.
The weekly astronomy radio show “Obsesión por el Cielo” will continue to be freely available to everyone in podcast format through our provider, PodBean, for the next three years. We also secured the “obsesionporelcielo.net” domain name which we used to open a new website for the show (http://obsesionporelcielo.net/), and also arranged for web-hosting fee payments for the next three years.
We have produced (written, recorded and edited) four audio recordings that will help the public orient and familiarize themselves with the night skies. Each audio guides the listener through the available constellations for a particular season of the year. These were made available to the general public in two different ways:
– As free downloads at our new website for “Obsesión por el Cielo”
– 1,000 CDs for general distribution during star parties, conferences, etc. These CDs also included general seasonal star charts as visual aids to the audios, maps of all the individual constellations for binocular use, and also included installation versions of “Stellarium” (a free open source planetarium software for the computer).
