Astroclubul Bucuresti was invited to participate at the International Science Festival AstroFest October 2018, held in the city of Targoviste, Romania. The event was hosted by SARM (Romanian Astronomical Meteor Society), a dedicated amateur astronomer society, led by Valentin Grigore, its tireless and enthusiastic President. We had the honor and the pleasure of meeting the leadership of the Astronomers Without Borders organization, represented by AWB Founder and President Mike Simmons. We also met numerous other important personalities that participated in the event, coming from countries all around the globe, such as Canada, France, Austria, Australia, United Arab Emirates and the United States of America. Many astronomical societies from Romania also participated in the event. We are immensely grateful to have been invited to this astronomically themed festival and we hope to see our newly made friends as soon as possible.

About Me

Astroclubul Bucuresti is an amateur astronomer association in Romania. The association is continuing the tradition of amateur astronomy in Romania, which started in 1907 with the founding of the first “Romanian Astronomical Society". We are amateur astronomers mainly from Bucharest but we also have members in Melbourne (Australia), Auckland (New Zeeland), Cambridge (UK), Paris (France), Silistra (Bulgaria), Canary Islands (Spain). The main interests of our organization are visual observations, astrophotography, variable star observations, spectroscopy, outreach in schools and popularizing astronomy to the general public and organizing lectures and astronomy training courses. Astroclubul Bucuresti also regularly cooperates with the Astronomical Institute...
