Imagine you are in space, the Earth slowly rotating below you as each part of the globe falls into darkness and city lights spot the continents.  It's a stunning view.

Now imagine that as nightfall creeps from east to west like a wave flooding the land in darkness, at each national border two groups of astronomers come together from both sides to marvel at the beauty of the stars above.  The scene is repeated at the border of each successive neighboring country as night moves forward, enveloping each in darkness. Circling the Earth, the resulting relay becomes a global chain of people who are no longer different, now unified by their passion for the sky.  It's a global StarPeace chain, and you can be one of its links. Celebrate "Thirty Nights of StarPeace" during Global Astronomy Month and live its motto, "One People, One Sky."
