“All of these activities were made possible by Memorandums of Understanding signed during the year with important local realities Chairman’s comments Louis Sanino – Which I would like to thank below for the trust and support that they have not been missing locally: CAI La Spezia, Arcigni, Meteo Spezia, Proloco Biassa, Municipality of Arcola, Proloco del Golfo, Assonautica, Academy of Capellini and national, among which we mention L.‘UNPLI (National Union Pro Loco of Italy) in person George Anthony and theINGV (National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology), with reference Maurizio Soldani To build the third ion probe on national territory (the only one in the North) to study space weather on land owned by the Society. This combination will give our association access to scientific data useful for study and research. Another important but international union is the accession to the European project Trails in blue the professor Erica Meone With which our association cooperates in the “Sea of Stars” series of events. Certainly the most important goal of all the members was to take over the management of the Astronomical Observatory Viseggi mountainHaving built it in the 1980’s, we now have 12 years of management to restore it to its 90’s splendor, which we plan to open in the spring. Excellent work has also been done on the light pollution front with two thematic conferences on the subject in the municipalities of Val di Vara (we mention that we are a regional delegation and have an office granted by the municipality of Borghetto di Vara) and Varese Ligure, as well as dozens of reports on incompatible systems, which Given the unfavorable historical period, the environment will also help. Member growth was also phenomenal for the proposed events, and we closed the year with sixty members and many children, showing that astronomy is within everyone’s reach. I also thank all the members from the Steering Committee to the most active during all the evenings, Giampietro Cattoi, Francesco Franchini, Stefano Benaglia, Giovanni Parenti, Roberto Cioni, Giulio Scarfi, Luca Bertagna, Sirio Negri, Mariana Bassani, Simona Mercanti, Glenda Acerbi and Andrea Austi And Ingrid Roncarolo, Chiara Cioni, Loris Martini, Giuseppe Tavaglione and all members of Lunae Astronomical Society Sarzana, Municipal Administration of La Spezia, library services in the personnel of Sara Broschi and Claudia Bocciardi and last but not least the paper newspapers Nazione, Il Secolo XIX and electronic newspapers, Città della Spezia, Gazzetta della Spezia, Liguria Notese, La Spezia News and MeteoWeb for hundreds of articles published during the year“.
