Paper Abstract

The main aim of the "Pi of the Sky" experiment is to search for optical flashes associated with the gamma ray bursts. The detector also allows us to study other kinds of short timescale astrophysical phenomena. During everyday observations "Pi of the Sky" detector collects many measurements of interesting objects like blazars, quasars, variable stars etc. It is very important to make this data available to other experiments as fast as possible. Dedicated WWW interface connected with the "Pi of the Sky" database in Chile was created to provide on-line access to selected objects. The interface allows quick and easy accesses to the "Pi of the Sky" data right after all measurements processes are finished.
