In the wake of the migration from Astronomy, there are a couple of questions that may or may not be appropriate on this site, which I would like to get the community's feedback on.

Who should I contact if I see an unknown object in the sky?

Ways of verifying the origin of a meteorite?

I think I agree with you that both are good for what it's worth. The closing of Astro means we need to pick up the slack, and that includes some pure astro questions. I didn't realize it was a migration due to site closing, so I said something else originally in comments, but I think that they are appropriate now.

From what I can see, both of these questions seem on topic for astro. This question:if-its-possible-do-we-want-to-expand-the-scope-of-this-site-to-include-astrono seems to indicate that essentially all of astro is now within scope (with the exception of astrophotography). Is this correct? I haven't looked at chat sessions or anything, and it's quite possible that I missed another meta question related to this. If so, a pointer would be helpful.

Is there a final policy or at least rough consensus on what the new scope is? Is it (Physics U Astro) or something else?

    $\begingroup$ That question was the official discussion on changing the scope. The community seems to be in favor so we are going to do that - as of Friday our scope now includes astronomical questions. (And that reminds me, I need to update the FAQ) $\endgroup$ – David Z May 8 '12 at 8:38
