6th Siberian Astronomical Forum


The 6th Siberian astronomical forum took place not far from Novosibirsk in the middle of October, 16-18th. The main forum organizers were Novosibirsk Instrument-Making Plant (NPZ) and Siberian State Geodesy Academy (SSGA).
Good weather, fresh air and clear sky allowed astronomy lovers to enjoy night observations of the Moon, for which telescopes of different calibers (up to 250mm) and 110mm binoculars were used. People could compare image in the telescope’s or binocular’s eyepiece with that one depicted on the big map of Moon, situated at the observation ground.


Forum participant also had an opportunity to observe the giant planet Jupiter and 4 its satellites, and astronomy beginners could learn more about starry sky. Heads of 2 planetariums (little one of SSGA and big one, which is being built now) gave lectures and some advanced astronomers tried to take photos of a comet and Dumbbell Nebula.


Observations continued by day. Unlike two last forums, when there was nothing to observe at the Sun, this time all interested participants could enjoyed observing sun-spots through “Coronado” telescopes (both presented in Novosibirsk were available at the forum).

Honorary guests of the forum were space pilot, Hero of Russia, A.I. Lazutkin, and Moscow astronomer V.G. Surdin. Some famous scientists from Siberian Department of Russian Academy of Sciences also took part in the forum.


The main theme of the forum was cosmonautics, because 2011 is a year of Russian cosmonautics. And the main event of the year is building of new Planetarium. A new telescope TAL-200A, produced by NPZ specially for the Planetarium, was presented at the forum. In total 520 men participated at the forum this year.

Organizational committee of “SibAstro-2011” is grateful to all participants and invite everyone to take part in the next forum in a year.
