Observing Events

Every year Astronomers Without Borders, our National Coordinators and members choose between five to ten Observing Events that can usually be seen throughout the world.

These events are chosen because they can be seen globally and viewed without the aid of any equipment.

These include meteor showers, conjunctions, super moons,  etc. This is also an optimal time when we can bring in a partner so that their audience can enjoy the sight.

Astronomers Without Borders is also involved with promoting and taking part in other organizations' programs. International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) run by NASA, is a perfect example of combining audience with the purpose of sharing the night sky and creating community.

Community participation is requested by sharing experiences in writing along with a photo.
