Having experience in holding similar programs such as star parties, Messier marathons, astronomy day, side-walk astronomy, 100 Hours of Astronomy and etc. is recommended to societies and astronomy societies who want to participate in StarPeace project.
Societies who are interested in holding StarPeace should register the society, the place and time of the event in StarPeace website and after holding the event they should send a report with photos, movies, etc. to StarPeace core team with this email email@example.com
Societies who want to hold a StarPeace event in their region should follow their country's StarPeace ambassador or local coordinators. They should be in contact with their IYA National Node too in order to get helping form them for administrative affairs. Also they could be in contact with StarPeace core team in order to know how they should organize the event and to get to know their neighboring country's astronomy clubs.
To know exactly what equipments you want to hold a StarPeace event check the StarPeace precept in Multimedia page. Improve your society and meanwhile get ready to organize a StarPeace event before the end of 2009.
It has been suggested that clubs get governmental or private sponsors in their country to support their StarPeace travels, if they are not able to pay the expenses.
The time of the StarPeace events is not determined from before. It depends on the holder societies situations, like weather conditions, etc. But there are some factors which we recommend to consider them:
1 - The quarter moon has a fascinating view by telescopes for public.
2 - The event could be about the same time as an interesting astronomical event such as moon and planetary conjunctions, occultation, solar and lunar eclipses and meteor showers.
3 - The event could be about the same time as an anniversary of an important astronomy or space event such as launch of the first artificial satellite anniversary, anniversary of the first man who walked on the Moon, birth day of famous scientists in history like Newton, Kepler, etc. and scientists or astronomers of a country like Professor Abdus Salam in Pakistan.
4 - The event could be about the same time as special national or international days such as national ceremonies.
