Capture the Colorful Cosmos Astrophotography Project – Deadline Sept 30, 2009

Students, teachers, individuals and families can “Capture the Colorful Cosmos” this summer. From July through September, participants can use MicroObservatory, an online network of robotic telescopes controlled over the Internet.

NASA and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics invite the community to share views of the universe in this exciting astrophotography project. The images taken using online robotic telescopes will be featured on the NASA and International Year of Astronomy Web sites.

Anyone with an e-mail address can use the MicroObservatory robotic telescopes to request electronic images of astronomical objects. Participants 13 or younger will need a parent or guardian to enter their photos for them. Photos can be taken all summer long. Images must be submitted by Sept. 30, 2009, to participate in the project.

Select photos from the project will be featured on the NASA and International Year of Astronomy Web sites beginning on Labor Day.
