About Beauty Without Borders

Beauty Without Borders:  There are amazing sights to see when you look up and see what's in Earth's neighborhood.  But most people go about their daily lives without ever noticing the wonders of the rest of the Universe. BwB is designed to encourage amateur astronomers to share the sky and its wonders with others so they, too, can discover their Universe.

Begun by groups of amateur astronomers from around the world in the planning for 100 Hours of Astronomy during the International Year of Astronomy 2009, BwB brings together the best celestial events and the cross-border programs of Astronomers Without Borders with Sidewalk Astronomers outreach programs.

Program Goals

  • Coordinate an observing program for special celestial events
  • Connect outreach astronomers planning local events
  • Provide a platform for participants to share their events with others
  • Create friendships and understanding through collaboration
