Observing Challenges

Every Global Astronomy Month, AWB and the The Astronomical League partner to run a series of Observing Challenges, developed by John Goss. Whether you are a complete novice to astronomy or a seasoned veteran there will be something for you! Some of the challenges can be completed in one night and some will take the whole month.

If you are a sidewalk astronomer or part of an astronomy club you might like to run events to help people complete the challenges. If are planning an Observing Challenge event, don't forget to register for your event!
