AstroGuide: An evolving outreach resource
This resource is meant to be a quick reference guide for people doing any form of astronomy outreach. It is meant to cover some of the most common questions that are asked during any astronomy presentation. Hence it has been dubbed the "Essential Astronomy Quick Reference Guide for Outreach". However, upon careful consideration of the acronym "EAQRGFO" we have decided to called it the "AstroGuide" for short.
One of the principles was that everything fits onto a single A4 sheet of paper which can easily be folded and kept in one's pocket in case of emergency astronomy outreach! (Such an emergency situation may arise if one comes across a clear sky in the presence of a crowd!) Well, we've managed to squeeze in a whole lot of info onto 4 electronic pages so when you are printing this guide, please print "2 pages per sheet" and "print on both sides" in order to keep to the principle of it fitting onto one A4 page.
It is also meant to be an evolving document so anyone with experience in astronomy outreach is welcome to evaluate and suggest changes to this document. Also, if you come across similar documents/guides let's try to take the best of each and come up with a user friendly final version. Whatever suggestions you have for improvement, please send them to info(at)astronomy2009.org.za. Have we missed something important? Have we made a mistake? Should we squeeze in more? All comments welcome.
Latest versions of the AstroGuide will be downloadable from this webpage.
