For those of you on Facebook, I began an Astronomical Sketching group there last week. So, if you're interested, please pop along, take a look, press 'Like' and join in. Feel free to post sketches and observations, etc.

Faith

That's a great idea. It will inform others around the world to discover the art of sketching in astronomy. I have informed many other artists and friends from the other direction in my Facebook to take a look at Cloudy Nights over the past years.

I know many who will not go to Facebook or previously to Myspace, yet I have posted much of my astro photo and artwork to both sites over the years. I would suggest that we just think of it as another way to connect to many others with similar interests. The Australian site- Ice in Space is also linked to my Facebook. I'll send you a link to add as a friend but then you are going to see everything about my life /~; I have nothing to hide as long as I reside on this planet with all the rest of us! :cool:

Go for it. I'll confirm it and then you can see all my nonsense as well!

And thanks for letting people know about the page. :)

Likewise as Mark says. Great idea to get a bit of outreach. See you all over on FB!

We've got 68 members now, which is great. People are posting some great sketches, too.

Hi!
I'm just joined a seconds ago... I'm not a so active sketcher guy, but I think it´s a good idea having such a place...
