Global Astronomy Month is the world’s largest annual celebration of astronomy. Whether local events or online, watching or sharing, science or art, there’s something for everyone.
The Astronomers Without Borders global community is at the heart of everything we do. Bringing the community together through astronomy fosters friendship, understanding, and good will. Programs and activities are made possible by the participation of AWB members.

AstroPoetry of the Week
Here's an excerpt from Connie S. Tettenborn's poem "The Nature of Moon Halos" accompanied by a photo by Valentin Grigore. Read this lunar lyric at our AstroPoetry Blog.
Only when the moon is full A bubble will rise and grow in the skies. Only when the stars are right The moon will be kissed by “circle of mist.”
Granting it the seat of gods, To watch o’er the earth, ‘til now from its birth. Standing there the guard of night A giant white eye that fills up the sky.
