Sunrises and sunsets are not only beautiful and peaceful but also inspiring to all humans. This is especially true during the solstice, the time in the calendar when we change seasons. These special moments, when magical colours fill the skies while the Sun casts its golden hues across the earthly landscape, humbles us. It has the power to unite, by reminding us that we are One People under One Sky.
Astronomers Without Borders is asking you to join us in celebrating the June Solstice and capture that feeling of oneness with nature by taking a photo of your sunrise or sunset and sharing it with the world.
Use your smartphone or digital camera to take your own artistic portrait of the sunrise or sunset anytime between June 16 and June 23.
The campaign is open worldwide.
