PROCEEDINGS OF THE SECOND HELAS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: HELIOSEISMOLOGY, ASTEROSEISMOLOGY AND MHD CONNECTIONS vol:118 issue:1 pages:2061-2061
International Conference on Helioseismology, Asteroseismology and MHD Connections (HELAS II) location:Gottingen: GERMANY date:AUG 20-24, 2007-2008
The Astronomical Observatory of Mongolia is presented. Besides a heritage steeped in rich culture and tradition, Mongolia offers endless steppes and blue skies of such intensity that they gave the country its name. This astronomically advantageous feature, the high level of education and motivation among its young inhabitants, plus the fact that there are few observatories in Central Asia, make Mongolia a very suitable place for astronomical observations.
