WELCOME TO GLOBAL ASTRONOMY MONTH!
Join Astronomers Without Borders for Global Astronomy Month 2014 (GAM 2014) and enjoy a month long astronomy outreach celebration.
As with every April, so begins Global Astronomy Month and it’s a perfect opportunity to have some fun with astronomy and enjoy the night sky. If you’re new to astronomy and or have little equipment then the Google hangouts and online Messier marathon, Mars observations & asteroid Vesta watch will bring the cosmos to you via the Virtual Telescope Project (links below). April is really perfect for astronomy month, especially this year as April boasts 2 asteroid oppositions, Mars opposition, 2 meteor showers and 2 eclipses!
Visit the links below and contact your local astronomical societies (astronomy clubs) and see if they are holding any events in association (They darn well better be if they’re organized).
