Observations has been running on this site for nearly 10 years now. The very first post, published way back in June 2006, was by our original curator, Dr Nick Lomb, and focussed on the lighting of the Sydney Opera House sails. An appropriately iconic topic for a first post!
To get it ready for its birthday, we’re redecorating and giving the blog some maintenance. From 9am EST on Tuesday 1 March, we’ll be migrating this blog to its new home over on the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) site.
During this maintenance, you’ll still be able to read this blog, access pdfs and the audio files for our sky guides as per usual without interruption. However, commenting will be unavailable until after our maintenance finishes – hopefully by the end of the day. You’ll be able to add your comments and insights again from tomorrow.
We’re aiming for a smooth transition but if there are some disruptions to our regularly scheduled programming, please be patient. Once the process is complete, this blog will look and feel shiny and new but will be accessible from the same links you’ve always used. The rest of our site will also be moved in the weeks after.
