2024 Observing Program

Throughout the 2024 calendar year AWB will be running a series of observing programs that highlight a series of skywatching events ranging from eclipses, meteor showers and planetary and lunar encounters.  We've carefully curated our list to include events  that are visible across large portions of the globe ,and are accessible mostly with the unaided eyes, but in some cases, enhanced with the use of binoculars and telescopes. 

We invite individuals, astronomical clubs/associations, educational and outreach institutes to join us in celebrating the wonders of the night sky. Send us your observational reports and share your photos on our social media channels by using our hashtag #onepeopleonesky to highlight our globally shared sky heritage.
