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.
Mike Simmons president of AWB and Daniela de Paulis, AstroArts Director, hung out with Nicole Stott, retired astronaut last Friday. Nicole spoke about her evolution from astronaut to artist. In this captivating interview, Nicole shares her experience in space and her view of the Earth and how becoming an artist was always in her.

New Star Walk Website!
A Members Report comes to us from Austria and www.sternenweg-grossmugl.at. Check out their site and this wonderful idea of enjoying the night sky on a nature walk.
"The Grossmugl Star Walk is an astronomical edutainment trail near a small village in Austria, Europe. The "Sternenweg Grossmugl", as it is called in Austria, is a self-guided tour encouraging astronomical observations with the unaided eye. Nine displays along the trail explain general astronomical topics in an easy-to-read way. On a 90 minutes' walk, visitors learn how to spot star colors, artificial satellites, the Milky Way and other objects in the night sky. The 1.5-km-long tour is free of charge, open all year round day and night and available without booking or reservation."
