The Royal Observatory is one of the most important historic scientific sites in the world; home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian line. This talk will outline how digital media and the availability of huge quantities of data are creating new opportunities for the public's participation in astronomy. In particular, Fiona will talk about the Royal Observatory's mobile guide to the night sky, Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition, and a new programme of citizen science.
