Award Information
Previous Months' Winners

Week of September 15, 1997

The Columbus Optical SETI Observatory
Most people associate SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) with radio observatories and seraches at microwave wavelengths. However, as Dr. Stuart Kingsley explains at this Web site, searches at optical wavelengths -- from the ultraviolet through the visible to the infrared -- can also be used to turn up evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence. This largely overlooked techinique is discussed in detail at this Web site, along with other information about SETI.
Stanford SOLAR Center
The Stanford SOLAR (Solar On-Line Activity Resources) Center provides educational activities about the Sun based on data from the SOHO mission. There are activities, basic information, solar artwork (including images and illustrations of data), and an opportunity to ask questions of solar physicists, among other features. This site is an excellent resource for students wishing to learn more about the Sun.

Week of September 8, 1997

The Cosmic Mirror
The Cosmic Mirror provides updates on events in astronomy and space exploration. Updates usually come once a week, but editor Daniel Fischer provides more frequent updates during conferences and other special events. The news articles include links to more detailed information on other Web sites.
Regulus! The Astronomy Newsletter
Amateur astronomers looking for information about their hobby online should check out "Regulus!", an online astronomy newsletter. The site features content updated monthly on the state of amateur astronomy, from what's visible in the night sky that month to feature articles and scientific papers.
