I went looking for special notice #300 (suspect object in the Hyades) this afternoon.  I couldn't find it.  In the meantime #301 had been issued, and that was not apparent on the website.  #299 is the last one available on the special notice archive page.

BITD, new AAVSO Alerts etc. were prominently featured on the web site - are they there somewhere now, and I'm just not seeing them, or is the only way to see what's current to root through my e-mail?  I ask because I was posting something via social media, and I wanted a link to the special notice itself.


Special Notices

Hi Jim,

The web versions for alerts and special notices are not automatically generated -- they're currently created like all other web pages by the staff.  We ran out of time yesterday -- Special Notices 300 and 301 will go online this morning.  I apologize for not getting that done before going offline for the evening.

In the meantime, the Alert and Special Notice archives can be accessed by going to the "Observing" tab -- Alert and Special Notices are the fourth item from the top in the drop-down menu.  You can also find them in the same way under the "About Us" tab, in the "Publications" submenu.
