Alright, I know we might all be hyped up about #Moonwatch but we can’t forget the Amazing event, which is #GalileanNights.
Being an official Cornerstone project of the IYA2009, it commemorates Galileo’s Observations of the moon, Jupiter, Pleiades, and many other celestial objects. Starting on Thursday, October 22nd people all around the world will be tweeting, broadcasting, and blogging about/from their events. Now of course some broadcasts are better than others (*Cough* Galilean Nights – Kansas *Cough*) while some twitter feeds maybe be blank, we can not give you an exact amount of people tweeting about their events. Though we know for sure that the official Twitter account of Galilean Nights, @GalileanNights will be tweeting about events all around the world!

Hope to hear from you during #GalileanNights,
