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.
We are excited to be launching are most ambitious crowd-funding campaign yet - and we are asking you and our worldwide AWB community to help make it a success. On September 1, 2016, an annular eclipse will be gracing the skies of central Africa, and our goal is to send 37,000 solar eclipse glasses to students.
For every U.S. dollar you give, we will be able to send a pair of glasses to a child to allow them to witness one of nature's most amazing cosmic wonders, and help provide a great science learning opportunity of a lifetime.
Our newest BIG Campaign it to provide students in India with a Solar Telescope. Thanks to the generous folks at Woodland Hills for providing the solar scope at a deeply discounted price. The telescope will be used to see solar prominences and sun spots all to inspire the youth to be interested in STEM education.
This week's poem comes to us from Valentin Grigore and Andrei Dorian Gheorghe with this beautiful haiku Romanian Skies 2016 (37). Check out this and other poetry at our AstroPoetry blog.
