There are many other unique gifts that you can purchase for that special astronomy enthusiast at the AWB Store.
Holidays with Uwingu
Uwingu is now offering a unique opportunity to name craters on Mars. Large or small, the crater that you choose to bear your name or the name of a loved one and will be included in the Uwingu map of Mars. This map will be sent to the Red Planet on the private Mars One mission. Check out available craters. When you order your crater, you can choose a Chanukah, Christmas or Seasons Greetings certificate.
AstroPoetry of the Week
Our poetry this week comes from Joanne Tilsley who was noticed by our AstroPoetry editor, Bob Eklund, when she entered her works to our annual GAM AstroPoetry contest last year.
Here is her prose that was inspired by Orion's "Horsehead Nebula":
Starmother, you face the hoary frost of heaven, and brood "our dusty clutch of hatchlings, with all their quiescent probabilities, deep within your cloudy wavelengths and your lightyears of dreams.
Stay tuned to our website, we're going through some changes that we're sure that you will like! All this happens in the new year!
Global Astronomy Month is coming up in April. We're starting to gear up for our special annual event. Mark April on your calendars to participate in all the GAM festivities. We're planning on a lot of events, so check out our schedule and plan to take part! We are also looking for global programs that your organization can run with us. Please submit a proposal. Here are the rules for submission.
