Galaxy Zoo Get-Together Index
« on: February 24, 2008, 11:54:10 pm »
This is to everybody on Galaxy Zoo, whether you live in the UK or not.

I'm not much of a scientist or astronomer, but I have made the discovery that zooites have a special gravity of their own - when we all met up, virtually none of us knew each other, but it was like meeting old friends. I would thoroughly recommend coming along to any meet-up you can, and if you're in a different continent, to see if you can arrange one with others living nearer you. I've therefore created this Index to help arrange further ones.

We'll keep updating threads for past, present and future plans. Feel free to start any. If you're too far for me to reach, I'm happy to help. I hope to meet lots more of you, and that those too far away can meet each other. Here's a list of the ones ahead . . .

* Planned and organised - book yourself in! *

...


* Discussions, hopes and ideas / In the pipeline, details/actual go-ahead to be confirmed *

:) Northern Ireland meet-up, late October/early November 2011

:) Sticky for general ideas - post anything here, wherever you are

:) South Downs Planetarium, near Chichester, UK

:) Possible Galaxy Zoo Holiday - observing centre or star party?

:) US meet-up (with garret_cw as co-ordinator); other US meet-up thread


* P.S. And some more stuff we get up to *

:) Zooite Ideas, Projects, Activities and Publicity - Please Join In!

Past Meet-Ups 2014.

:) Meet-up at ASTROFEST 7-8 February 2014!

And with that, we decided...

Quote
We talked about how we don't really have any newcomers anymore since the last few meets, which is why the bunch of us who usually more or less organises this gathering has decided we might not do that anymore from the forum next year. Especially now that the Zooniverse has a community manager, Grant Miller, all future Zooniverse sanctioned meetups will be arranged / publicized by him  - so keep an eye out on the Daily Zooniverse for details.
