The Astronomical Society of South Australia held its first Online Star Party on the weekend just past. The event was designed to engage the public and included near real-time imaging using EAA techniques to display a wide variety of celestial objects spanning the life cycle of stars over ever increasing distances.
A total of 6 telescopes spread out across southern Australia were operated by ASSA members to support the live stream event. The feedback from the public was overwhelmingly positive. The information is being shared here to encourage other astronomy clubs who may wish to do adopt this style of public engagement.
