(English translation from the Romanian  and photo by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe)   Science is just an earthly invention, Oh what a discovery among earthlings, I pretend I understand relativity, You pretend that the Universe is infinite, I pretend I know universal attraction, You still demonstrate among quanta, There are clusters of stars in nebulae, I pretend I can go to Mars, You want to make for me a spaceship Better than that which went to the Moon, I really pretend I learn what life is, You truly believe we make figuration In the tridimensional material Euclidean…   Science...

In my epilogue for this SARM project, I have to specify that the tipuritura was born in the Maramures zone (north of Romania) to be performed on music or shouted at parties. Having a dense, tragicomic and philosophic spirit, this species is considered a kind of Romanian haiku, and it inspired a local artist, Stan Ioan Patras, to write verses on tombs and to create the Merry Cemetery in the village of Sapanta in the 1930s. But in our vision, an astrotipuritura must be usually optimistic and free in serving astronomy. Returning to the astro-photo-tipuritura of this (last) epilogue, I’ve...

We’ve chosen a symbolic image for the SARM epilogue of this project, hoping that we’ve made a honorable demonstration that, in spite of the capricious weather, people can make their own Global Astronomy Month if they really want. Finally the authors of the A(stro)Photo)T(ipuritura) SARM (Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy) for GAM 2014, Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (astropoet), Valentin Grigore (astrophotographer) and Alexandru Sebastian Grigore (designer) wish all of you to never stop to believe in high, celestial ideals.

Before a new series of rainy days, in 11 May Valentin Grigore and the Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy (SARM) organized in Targoviste’s Chindia Park the last GAM 2014 inertia (with the belief that the annual Global Astronomy Month will remain eternal). The same Valentin Grigore (photographer), plus Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (astropoet) and Alexandru Sebastian Grigore (designer) show here 3 astro-photo-tipurituras inspired from that event.

Valentin Grigore (photographer), Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (astropoet) and Alexandru Sebastian Grigore (designer) synthesized through these astro-photo-tipurituras a new GAM 2014 inertia, this time along with the International Astronomy Day and the Romanian Independence Day, which the Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy (SARM) organized in 10 May in Targoviste’s central square, near the statue of Mircea cel Batran (the Elder), the Romanian ruler who (together with his fighters) had saved Europe in 17 May 1395 from the advance of the Ottoman Empire, stopping at Rovine the army of Sultan Bayezid Ildirim. Regarding the Astronomy Day, since sometimes its abbreviation is...
