NEW: Eclipse Glasses Redistribution Program
Astronomers Without Borders will be announcing a program to collect eclipse glasses for distribution to other countries for future eclipses. Hold on to your glasses! Ask the company or organization you got them from if they will be taking part. We will announce details soon after the eclipse. We have corporate partners who will be receiving and processing them for us. Please DO NOT send them to AWB! Sign up for our newsletter for more details or follow us on Facebook.


Global Astronomy Month 2011 is over. Watch for news and program reports, and plans for GAM 2012 soon.

Read the GAM 2011 Final Report.

Global Astronomy Month continues the excitement of the unprecedented International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009).

IYA2009's 100 Hours of Astronomy showed what the astronomy community can do working together. Amateur astronomers, clubs, science centers and others held events by the thousands around the world, attracting the largest public audience ever. And everyone wanted more.

Global Astronomy Month is Astronomers Without Borders' response, bringing new ideas, new opportunities and again bringing enthusiasts together worldwide, celebrating One People, One Sky.
