ASTRONOMERS WITHOUT BORDERSελληνικά english по-русски
 

ASTRONOMERS WITHOUT BORDERS

Astronomers Without Borders is a global astronomy community. Astronomers Without Borders fosters understanding and goodwill across national and cultural boundaries by creating relationships through the universal appeal of astronomy.

Astronomy enthusiasts, educators, and others worldwide come together in programs based on their common interest and passion in astronomy. They united under the motto 'ONE SKY - ONE PEOPLE' to emphasize that during observations of the starry sky all differences between people vanish in darkness.

Global Astronomy Month (GAM), organized each April by Astronomers Without Borders, is the world's largest global celebration of astronomy.

You can see the events, projects and campaigns on the Astronomers Without Borders website: www.astronomerswithoutborders.org

Since 2009 the KITION PLANETARIUM & OBSERVATORY as the National coordinator for Astronomers Without Borders in Cyprus conducts events nationwide.
