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.

AWB has planned a rich schedule of programs and events for Global Astronomy Month 2011 (GAM2011), all designed to inform and inspire the public throughout the world. These events are listed below by date. For more information on each program, click on the highlighted links.
