In honor of the 42nd anniversary of the Moon landing, half of all proceeds from the sale of Distant Suns today and tomorrow will go to help the SETI Institute continued search for extraterrestrial life.

The institute, located in Mountain View, California, currently has a fundraising drive to help keep their telescope array operating through the rest of the year. The Allen Telescope Array was initially funded in part by Paul Allen, Microsoft’s co-founder. Due to the current economy there is a shortfall of much needed funds and “Stars” are needed to keep it running.

All sales from between 20:17 UTC today through 17:54 UTC tomorrow will count towards helping keep the ATA up and running.

Go to https://setistars.org for information about their funding drive, and www.seti.org for more general information about the institute.
