AWB is setting up a number of projects and events in July to celebrate the close approach of Mars at the end of the month. See this web page: https://astronomerswithoutborders.org/awb-programs/community-based-programs/mars-red-planet-rising.html Mars: Red Planet Rising - astronomerswithoutborders.org It takes a lot of people around the world to make Astronomers Without Borders a reality, from the staff and board to volunteers in many countries. We would like all of our astro-poet friends to help us commemorate "Red Planet Rising" in poetry, by sending us Mars-related poems in July. Happy writing!

Young stars appear with varied ages bluish in the illustration thus depicting assorted stages of their individuation. This small grouping astronomy shows a pellucid picture of growth for studies penned in technical prose, plus stelliferous lyrics both, composed...
