We are very excited to share the Global Astronomy Month 2019 Trailer! The wonders of the universe come alive in this eye-catching montage of some of the best images of the night sky juxtaposed with an array of snapshots of star parties held around the world. This little video not only is a tribute to amateur astronomers around the world that share the heavens above but also hopefully inspires everyone to look up! View the trailer here .

Astronomy doesn't just happen at night! Throw a SunDay party to celebrate our star, the Sun! Awareness and appreciation of the Sun are all you need to participate. Check out our website for lots of suggestions for your party.

Tune in : APRIL 18, 2019, 15:00 UTC Join us on our Facebook Live to learn innovative ways to make astronomy accessible for everyone! We will share a variety of resources, suggestions, and ideas to promote inclusion for people with disabilities in astronomy. From 3D-printed galaxies for blind users to simple outreach considerations anyone can implement, tune in to explore the world of astronomy accessibility. The webcast will be hosted by Anna Voelker, Director of the SciAccess Conference and will feature special guest Tia Bertz, an undergraduate student working with the IDATA project.

Well into the third week into this celebration, we have some amazing online activities available for anyone. We hope to see you and your events listed with us and we'll share your activities around the world.
