On April 25, President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski and the First Lady visited Torun, home town of Nicolaus Copernicus, famous Polish astronomer, who „stopped the Sun and moved the Earth“. In the Main Library of the Nicolaus Copernicus University President met with representatives of the Polish astronomer community. One of the short presentations given was devoted to citizen-science projects. In the presence of the President, the TAD (Telescopio Abierto Divulgación) robotic telescope at Observatorio del Teide in Tenerife (Canary Islands) was used to perform remote observation of the Sun, which was the symbolic opening of the GLORIA network to users.
