AWB’s programs bring us together to share the sky with each other and those around us, without political, geographic, or cultural borders. Through these contacts we learn about each other, and stereotypes and misunderstandings are replaced with reality and empathy.
Global Astronomy Month is the world’s largest annual celebration of astronomy. Whether local events or online, watching or sharing, science or art, there’s something for everyone.
The Astronomers Without Borders global community is at the heart of everything we do. Bringing the community together through astronomy fosters friendship, understanding, and good will. Programs and activities are made possible by the participation of AWB members.
Astronomers Without Borders started with a simple idea: The borderless sky connects us all. But I had no idea how powerful that idea was. Years later, AWB now connects people in the world's largest astronomy community.
At Astronomers Without Borders, we are passionate about connecting us all through our shared interest in the sky. We share the sky with others through outreach and education, but we can't do it alone.
Please support Astronomers Without Borders this holiday season. Help us grow the community and create innovative new programs. We are One People, One Sky.
