I don’t have a real specific interest in Astronomy, but I enjoy poking around on Worldwide Telescope and reading a few space blogs. That's why I was excited to come across a very interesting web site today. The 100 Hours of Astronomy is a effort to boost the worlds knowledge of and appreciation for the universe and everything in it.
The event is planned for April 2 – 5, and is made up of hundreds of events all over the globe. If you cannot get out and join in one of the events you can watch coverage on uStream.
The whole event seems to be quite well planned and certainly is pretty large in scope. It is planned as part of the International Year of Astronomy.
Those of you with kids, or who are educators, might be interested in a Google Group set up with details on getting young children involved. You can also follow the project on Twitter.Live streaming video by Ustream
