Other World Wide Web Sites of Interest

A page with a few Mars Links.
Links to NASA's Life on Mars page as well as some Mars Pathfinder links. I don't think any one page can hold all the Mars links on the Web. Use these few as a starting point.
Astronomy Picture of the Day
The Astronomy Picture of the Day is written and edited by Robert Nemiroff & Jerry Bonnell. In addition to a picture, there are NUMEROUS links on subjects related to the picture embedded in the text of the caption. I've had this on my hotlist for a while and finally got around to adding it to our page. This should give everyone a reason to hit the Web (and maybe our page) every day.
The NASA Space Calendar at JPL.
The NASA Space Calendar is maintained by Ron Baalke at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (he must be a busy man!). Each day has a space-related item or anniversary listed, and most entries have links to other pages with more details.
SAAO -- The South African Astronomical Observatory.
The SAAO was founded as the Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope in 1820 and the main building, used now for offices for the staff, was completed in 1828. There are various telescopes of historical importance on the grounds in Cape Town, including the McClean refractor, a 24-inch refractor which was used for pioneering spectroscopic observations. Today it is only used to show visitors the night sky. The major observing facilities, consisting of modern instrumentation and large telescopes, are near Sutherland in the Karoo.
