Extract

The last three years have been marked by changes, highlights and progress. Organizationally, commission 7 has joined Division I and plans proceed for commissions 8 and 24 to merge in 2000. They have had a common vice president during this triennium. Sadly, the Royal Greenwich Observatory was closed after over 200 years, but Her Majesty’s Nautical Almanac Office has continued at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. In St Petersburg, Russia, the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy was abolished, with some of the personnel relocated to the Institute of Applied Astronomy and Pulkova Observatory. In Paris, France, the Bureau des Longitudes was reorganized as the Institute of Celestial Mechanics-Bureau des Longitudes as part of the Paris Observatory.
