Global Astronomy Month

After the tremendous success of 100 Hours of Astronomy, astronomers all over the world said "It was fantastic. Let's do it again!" and so the Global Astronomy Month was born.

The event aims to recreate the huge impact that the International Year of Astronomy 2009 had regarding bringing astronomy to the general public. It will be celebrated this April by astronomy clubs, observatories and planetariums in all corners of the world. The extended period of time will give the opportunity to dodge weather surprises by just rescheduling the planned activities. Moreoever, the intensified communication between organisers will give the chance to inspire oneself from others idea in real time.

One people, one sky

    Happy New Year! :)
    Yes, IYA2009 put astronomy in the spotlights as hobby or science for the public and as interesting subject for the media. It's great that we can add on this during one month annualy even after 2009.
