2015 is the International Year of Light as declared by UNSECO. Cosmoquest with the collaboration with NUCLIO will produce 365 Days of Astronomy podcasts with a focus on ‘light’. Launched in 2009 as part of the International Year of Astronomy, the 365 Days of Astronomy has produced day after day of content across the years. This community contributed show has been downloaded roughly 8 million times, and has included roughly 1000 voices from 6 continents and countless countries. Initially launched as an audio only program, 365 DoA, added video content in 2013. Now, in 2015, we join the celebration of the International Year of Light and high-light content from the Cosmic Light cornerstone, the IAU cornerstone for the 2015IYL.

The podcast team invites people and organizations to sponsor shows by donating to support one day of the podcast. It costs us about $66 per episode. For $800, you can sponsor one day a month for the entire year. Each day (or set of days) comes with a chance to get  your message to the audience included at the beginning and end of the episode. Don’t have that much to give? Other sponsorship levels are available, and start as low as $20. These donations are essential to cover the price for editing, posting, and hosting our content.
