CAPjournal Issue 30 Now Available

The 30th issue of the Communicating Astronomy with the Public Journal is out now! This issue is a special edition with the theme “Astronomy Communication in a Time of Confinement”. It features public outreach initiatives of several groups that have risen to the challenge of organising astronomy events to stay connected with their communities even at the height of the pandemic.

In this issue, we present articles on “What to do in extreme times? An analysis of the astronomy communication actions in Brazil during the COVID-19 pandemic”; “Embracing virtual communication induced by the COVID-19 pandemic to help tackle the climate crisis”; and “Getting started in fundraising for astronomy outreach”.

All of this, and more, is featured in this free, peer-reviewed journal for astronomy communicators — available now for download.
