Global Astronomy Month

April 1, 2023 - April 30, 2023

Taken from Astronomers Without Borders:

Inspired by the 100 hours of astronomy, this annual offshoot began upon the inception of Astronomers Without Borders are remains one of its flagship programs.

A mix of various programs ranging from Astro Arts to Observational Programs, this festival runs the whole month of April and features partners and that creates a larger community of astronomy enthusiasts that span the globe.

AstroArts and AstroPoetry programs have evolved over the years. AWB organized and held both AstroArts and AstroPoetry contests to encourage people of all ages, from all cultures to create art and poetry. These contests motivated  many to not only share their love for the night sky but to further their knowledge of astronomy science. 

The AstroArts and AstroPoetry contests were open to both children and adults in both art and poetry competitions.  The results were hundreds of entries differing in media used, rhyme or verse, pencil or color. They brought images of what planets looked like, or how man stepped on the moon, or how children saw themselves traveling through space in words and pictures.
