See Orkney skies on the iPad!

To promote the ‘Dark Skies Orkney’ event of December 2011 and Orkney astronomy generally, a new e-magazine was produced for iPad and web access.

It includes a feature on astronomy in Orkney with auroral photographs taken by John Vetterlein in Rousay and night sky images from Michael Sinclair in Kirkwall. John and Michael are the co-founders of the new Orkney Astronomical Society.

Also in the magazine you can find an interview by Amy Liptrot with Dr Marek Kukula at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, following his visit to Orkney in September for the 2011 Science Festival, along with a visit to the Highlands Astronomical Society’s JSL Observatory at Culloden.

The new magazine was approved by Apple and is in the iTunes store worldwide for free access – follow this link.

It’s also available on conventional web format, although this doesn’t have quite the same impact as the iPad – follow this link for the web version.
