The Virtual Sun - Awards for this page

I created this site for the annual `Science Day' here in Holland, to let the visitors to our Astronomical Institute play with. It was great for me to see people and especially young kids be amazed by the things presented here.

There are also a number of Internet sites which chose to award this site. In order not to clutter the front page with icons and buttons, here's a list of the `links of the day/week/month' this site has received.
