Major updates to the Night Sky Network in April

Updates to the Night Sky Network are coming this month! The NSN website will soon have a new, clean and modern look and feel while retaining all of the features that make using the Night Sky Network so great. In fact, we are hoping that this update will make the site easier to use and more accessible for folks of all walks of life, from the most hard core astronomers to members of the general public who are curious about our Night Sky. 

Club Members and Coordinators: the functionality of our site will remain the same. You will still be able to post and log events, share your calendars, manage club rosters, and so on. However, the site itself will be up to date with some of the latest web standards, along with a clean, modern look and more intuitive style. We will be mobile friendly as well, allowing you to update and log events from your Tablet (depending on the availability of an internet connection, of course). Currently we are testing the new look for the website and making sure everything is working and ready to go.

Some of the new features for the Night Sky Network:

 

 

  • Mobile Device Support (iOS and Android)
  • Improved Night Sky Planner
  • Location-Aware Event and Club Finder
  • Modern look and feel
  • Intuitive interface
  • Cleaner Maps
  • Embedded videos
  • Easier to search Resources and Events


We will send out a notice to all clubs shortly before the NSN website is updated. The site will be down for a short time as we update and transfer the site to its new setup. While we are trying very hard to find and fix every bug, some may remain. If you find a bug, please report your findings to nightskyinfo@astrosociety.org and we will work hard to get it fixed as soon as we can. 


Thank you all for your patience as we update the site. We will follow up with a special webcast to answer your questions and redo our training videos as well to reflect the new look and abilities of the Night Sky Network.
