The Observatory website was awarded one of the ten most meritorious websites in 2015. This was the third time for the Observatory website to win this award after the 2008 and 2009 contests. The winning websites were elected by online voting by the public as well as judged by an adjudication panel with reference to the information content, the attractiveness of the presentation and layout as well as the web accessibility design.
