A number of reports and other things have come in from the Beyond the International Year of Astronomy, 2009 website.

The book drive for Tanzania has been pretty successful in pulling in donations by members of Greater Portland Astronomical Society in Maine, USA, report here.

A new website aims to be the best source of information for careers in astronomy from student to professor level. It is here.

A report on some Dark Skies efforts can be seen here. Or not, depending on how successful it has been…

Many, many excellent prizes from trips to the House of Commons to an all expenses paid visit to the Kennedy Space Center in Texas await UK schoolchildren who enter this competition, turning one guy’s mix of science videos into a fully fledged science movie. Further info here.

And finally, not a musical note in sound, some video from the International SKA Forum 2010.
