Astronomy is found in every culture worldwide and throughout history, including in the art we create. Our traditions and our daily lives are all touched by the presence of the stars. Artists and scientists may see the skies in different ways initially, but we’re all just seeing the skies from our own perspective. From the early science fiction writers and illustrators to blockbuster movies and contemporary art, Arts and Culture programs highlight the ways in which astronomy enriches our cultures and our daily lives.

Welcome to the AWB AstroPoetry Blog, where we feature contributions from astropoets around the world. All members are invited to share their own poems, verses, and rhymes related to the science and the beauty of astronomy.
